Why Choose 4WARD.VC?

We like to say to founders: “we won’t be the biggest check on the cap table, but we will bring the biggest heart, hustle and network.”

Because VC is no longer about just cash, it’s about value, hustle and TRULY helping portfolio companies succeed. And you can ask our founders: NO ONE does it better.

We aren’t just “founder-friendly”, we’ve built the world’s largest network of engaged, active climate investors, corporates and LPs through pure grit and outreach and continue to grind everyday for our companies with intros, media, partnerships, pilots and more.

“Of all the people I have worked with so far, Matt’s been the most active and helpful in terms of introductions.”
