CEO of Neocarbon

Having so many talented startups clustered here has been brilliant. I’ve met some amazing startups that I might not have otherwise met, and connected them with some of our corporate partners as well.

Hendrik Dik

Climate Lead, MassChallenge Switzerland

4WARD’s global network is invaluable. I joined a sector call on decarbonising the built world and met people all over the world tackling it in different ways. During the call, I met an expert from Canada while being in Switzerland!  We’ve since had multiple calls and he’s likely to become a board member of my company. This is how a global climate networking should work!

Kevin Kyer

CEO, Pyrpose

As someone new to the industry it has been nice to have someplace to plug into that immediately gave me exposure to many like-minded people with expertise across industry. It’s like a mini, perpetual climate conference in my pocket.

Frequently asked questions about our community

What does it cost?

4WARD membership is only $120/yr or $12/mo. Considering all the networking, events and $230k in credits, we think that this is a very good deal. We want to ensure everyone can afford to join because we need all stakeholders onboard to tackle climate change.

Why join if there are other similar and free communities?

We have made it our mission to build the world’s largest climate tech community to combat climate change. Our community is global which is key to unlocking major growth and value for you and your company. We promise you that you won’t get the same value from a local or industry specific group.

Is joining considered an official endorsement from our/ my company?

No, joining doesn’t equal an official endorsement, it just means we're committed to helping you move the world forward!

Why do I need to pay to become a full member?

We need 4WARD to be sustainable if we are going to help drive sustainable change and action for all. Building and running the largest climate & sustainability communities globally costs money and is a lot of effort.

How does the 30-day money back guarantee work?

If you are not happy, we will refund you. No questions asked, but we will be very interested in your feedback on how we can improve our offering.

Do you have a special program/ pricing for teams and corporates?

Of course we do. Send us an email and we are happy to give you more details on our special deal for teams and corporates.

Can I expense the membership fee to my company or corporate?

Sure! We will send you an invoice to share with your finance team.
