Colorwave's programming aims to create a thriving community of diverse talent that will help make the innovation economy more inclusive.

Colorwave currently offers three programs to support underrepresented talent


Colorwave Fellowship

The Colorwave Fellowship provides candidates with unrivaled access to resources, mentorship, and hands-on experience in the tech industry, aiming to break down traditional barriers and create a flourishing, multi-faceted community of forward-thinking individuals. It's more than a fellowship - it's a mission to make the innovation economy reflect the diversity of the world it serves.


Affiliates Program

The Affiliates Program is a condensed version of our flagship fellowship program designed to provide coaching support for those actively looking for roles in in-demand functions within the startup sector. The program is offered once per year and is normally 5 weeks in length. 


Founders Accelerator
and Circle Programs

Underrepresented founders face enormous challenges in building venture-backed companies. To support founders, we lead early-stage founder programming for alumni and others connected to our community that provides key advisory and mentorship on key challenges, connects founders to sources of capital, and builds a peer network to help navigate the founder journey together. Our founder accelerator and founder circle programs are run annually in small cohorts over 4-6 weeks.  


Colorwave is an independent 501(c)(3) organization.
