Welcome Fifth Wave Lab Applicant,
Thank you for your interest in the Fifth Wave Initiative.
As Canada's first feminist business accelerator initiative in the digital space, a women-led team of mentors, entrepreneurs, facilitators and experts, have designed Fifth Wave Labs
for woman-owned enterprises and will help guide the four-month journey.
CFC Media Lab is committed to empowering and supporting diverse women/womxn entrepreneurs within the Digital Media industry, and we recognize that increasing the diversity of our community supports this objective. With that aim, we are dedicating Cohort 2 of Fifth Wave Labs to Black, Indigenous and Women of Colour entrepreneurs and are excited to announce that up to nine founders/companies will have access to a $20,000 Service Boost fund* to help evolve and grow their digital media business.
Applications for Cohort 2 are open now through the end of October.
*Service Boost funds will be distributed to third-party services only. Payments cannot be made directly to Cohort 2 participants. Each Service Boost can be valued at up to $20,000 CAD for third-party services, inclusive of taxes.
Participant selection for Fifth Wave Labs begins with the below application.
