FourthWave’s Mission

We catalyze the growth of women-led technology companies to become best-in-class, inclusive, and high-performing. We work from a value system of co-creation with public and private partners to help grow vibrant, diverse start-up ecosystems in the cities where we have programs. We currently operate programs in Sacramento and Los Angeles.


Our focus is “capital readiness,” developing conscious leaders, and aligning our programs with the unique needs of entrepreneurs and their communities, as well as with the emerging technology sectors of the regional economy where companies are located.


We strive to ensure that the women-led  companies we support have every opportunity to deliver higher economic returns, and we strive to ensure that our founders become conscious leaders who build companies capable of delivering measurable, triple-bottom line (people, planet, profit) results.

Each year we recruit a cohort of new companies (up to 5) in each city and pair them with local venture mentors and specific subject expert coaches.  The founders are also assigned one dedicated advisor who becomes their influencing and advising champion.


FourthWave focuses on removing barriers to capital and challenges of growth and scale. We want to curate paths to solutions based on founder needs to help them achieve their vision and their company’s potential.


We are currently accepting candidates for the inaugural Sacramento cohort (Deadline April 12th), which will kick off with the program starting April 30th (Community Dinner for our Sac Cohort teams) and May 20th with a full-day of immersive education (Conscious Leadership, Capital, and Diversity Special Topics). Each team will have a primary coach to work with for the program year and expert mentors based on their catalyst plans for 2017.
