ABOUT SACRAMENTO

We launched in Sacramento in February of 2017 as a “co-creating beta” year, working together with public and private partners to create the most effective start-up ecosystem for women.

 

Our Sacramento program in 2017 has received funding through the City of Sacramento’s RAILS Innovation Grant Program, and is being developed and delivered by a co-founding group of mentors, advisors, and business, technology, and capital leaders from the region. Sacramento applicant program costs are waived as a grant-funded city program for 2017. 


 

Applications are currently being accepted for Sacramento. Please Apply Here.

 


FourthWave’s team and advisors are committed to helping best-in-class, women-led technology companies grow and scale with diverse teams, led by conscious leaders and teams who can remain in Sacramento.

 

We seek to assist participating companies find accessible capital and to help them grow their companies to be high-performing, job-producing enterprises.

 

Our goal is to help these companies be powerful contributors to Sacramento’s economic development and innovation sectors, reflective of the region’s diverse demographics and rising talent base.
