Tempest Risk Management Wins 2021 EDGE Grant
Published By: The Delaware SBDC
Tempest Risk Management, founded in 2019 by Andy Ziegler, is celebrating their recent 2021 EDGE Grant win! This rising-star venture in Wilmington provides custom, easy-to-understand plans and services that are appropriate for small businesses. Looking to strengthen communities, they provide small businesses with continuity management and disaster recovery services. Tempest Risk Management offers small business operation solutions including manuals, SOP consultation and construction, business continuity planning, and, now, a subscription web-based operations platform named the “Tempest Gateway”.
Andy has been working closely with SBDC advisors for over a year now, and says, “From the very beginning, the advice provided by the team at the SBDC has been invaluable. From business structure and licensing (assistance), to marketing advice, all the way to help with my EDGE Grant application, the people at the SBDC have been amazing. Now, I am so pleased that I can give back by presenting webinars on business operations, continuity, and cyber security on behalf of the SBDC. I was given so much that I want to give back. “
Using their 2021 EDGE Grant, they successfully built and launched the Tempest Gateway on January 17th, 2022. This platform allows businesses and employees to quickly access SOP’s, workflows, company directories, and more through their customized dashboard on the web and the Tempest Gateway mobile apps that are now available in the Apple and Google Play stores.

“The Delaware SBDC, without question, has been the most valuable partner for Tempest Risk Management from day one”, says Ziegler.
The SBDC was able to help Tempest Risk Management grow from a good idea in 2019 to a thriving company in 2021. Managing over 150 clients, a brand new product line, and very successful service offerings, we are excited to see this business continue to grow and succeed.
“When I speak with other young entrepreneurs, I always recommend that they engage with an SBDC advisor as soon as possible.” – Andy Ziegler
