A strong California – continuing to grow, compete, and innovate on a global scale – is essential to America. 


Rising and emerging regions of California provides a dynamic environment for world-class teams to research, develop, and commercialize new ideas. 


Why? Open air space, ocean sanctuaries, agricultural innovation, manufacturing capacity, rising research institutions, and more – emerging, rural, inland, and underestimated environments have new gravity to commercialize and innovate.

HawkTower fosters an ecosystem for world-class founders in markets largely unsupported by traditional approaches.


Critical portions of California lack growth startups that compete globally and spur job creation. The result is a brain drain and economic inequity. 

Today, less than 1% of California’s venture capital flows to underleveraged California. This includes cities like Fresno, Merced, Sacramento, Davis, Modesto, Bakersfield, Salinas, Santa Cruz, Monterey, and other emerging hubs (according to Pitchbook).
