    @goshann, I prefer the first option, Wave 5 Ventures. I like the "fifth wave of digital disruption" narrative a little bit better than calling "Gen 4."

    @goshann, I like the sound of Wave 5 Ventures, more than Gen 4 Ventures. I think the idea of, "a fourth generation..." sounds hip, but makes me think of something that will one day be obsolete. The fifth wave makes me think of something built of smaller parts to become something greater, there's a gestalt implication to it. I also think it gives you the ability to brand certain products as 'waves', or invites you to say you're 'making waves'. I also really enjoy the metaphor of the economy being an ocean or a sea, and Wave 5 knows how to navigate it. Both feel like solid names though. Great work!

    @goshann, I'm leaning towards the Wave 5 Ventures as it's sounds futuristic that will provide for the digital disruption you speak of.

    I also will suggest you to for the same "Wave 5 Ventures". It's sounds like good and solid.
    Go ahead with this..!!!

    Why to waste time on this? Give it to a virtual assistant, they will research and give you options asper your criteria. Any things which I am not sure, I give to habiliss.

    I feel like your explanations provide your answer. Is your hypothesis that we are in the fourth or fifth wave of digital disruption? Hard to explain to LPs why you called yourselves Wave 5 because you believe we are on the fourth wave of digital disruption.

    I have named several products from my current startup (Greetly) to several products with the mega-companies from my past. My one piece of advice for naming is to know what you want the name to evoke. That should provide enough freedom to be creative, with the guardrails to make your naming exercise effective.
