Creating powerful relationships that accelerate success
in software

Welcome to Boardwave

Our Purpose


We are a powerful community of software leaders, who recognise that we can be more successful together than alone. 

Boardwave’s exclusive members are the “who’s who” of the European software sector. Boardwave empowers each of them to build better businesses and together shape the future of the European software sector.

Boardwave uniquely provides a high powered networking group for brilliant leaders; independent of their business size, from start-ups to large PE-backed businesses; for talented first time CEOs, to the industry's most accomplished and successful Senior Executives and their Investors.


Boardwave delivers a programme of informal networking events and drives further discussion through a series of more intimate dinners and debates. Then its mentoring programme helps Executives to confidentially discuss their own business issues and personal development with world-class leaders, with relevant experience.

It's completely free to join and independent, so there are no sales pitches. Just open free-flowing debate between thought leaders, at our curated events.  

Our mentoring programme is especially helpful to developing software CEOs and Founders. We connect them with deeply knowledgeable & experienced Senior Executives. Helping develop them as leaders and accelerate their business success.

Boardwave is not-for-profit, our revenue comes from our sponsors, to enable us to build the Boardwave community. We do this with a conscience. Having run all our programmes, each year, if there is surplus capital, we donate it to our charity partner, Cure Parkinsons.

Boardwave - connecting like-minded people to facilitate their growth and success.
