Who We Are

About Boardwave

Our mission is to create powerful relationships
that accelerate success in software

At Boardwave, we are passionate about building a better software industry in Europe. All of the knowledge and know-how to start, grow, scale and build great software companies already exist here in Europe – right now.


This knowledge has been highly fragmented across geographies, vertical markets, sub-sectors, company growth stage and investment portfolios.

Our goal is to nurture knowledge and connect it to the people that need it most. We aim to provide the insights and clarity needed to make better decisions and build great companies, so that in the future Europe can rival the long-term success seen in Silicon Valley.

Boardwave is the software sector's only independent, high-end networking community. Designed for the most pre-eminent, accomplished and visionary Chairs, NEDs, CEOs, Founders & Entrepreneurs and their Investment Partners.

We are a powerful community of European software leaders who recognise that we can 

be more successful together than alone. We connect like-minded people to facilitate their growth and success.​​

Our Members benefit from our programme of exclusive networking events, knowledge and best-practice sharing workshops, mentoring programmes and online introductions.
