About this Event
RateMyInvestor, in partnership with Diversity VC, presents the findings of its inaugural "Diversity in US Startups" study. Though the lack of diversity in US venture capital and startups comes as no surprise, there is also a lack of data through which to assess the problem - and more importantly, to offer solutions.
A new report from RateMyInvestor, presented in partnership with DiversityVC, does just that. Far from focusing on a narrowly defined understanding of diversity, these analyses run across several diversity factors, including gender, size of team, ethnic background, location, and education.
Anthony Zhang, who initiated and conducted the study on behalf of RateMyInvestor, has spent months ensuring that this data is as extensive and accurate as possible, collecting hundreds of thousands of data points on nearly 10,000 founders and 135 of the most active venture capital firms in the world.
This event, graciously sponsored by Silicon Valley Bank, will present the report findings and offer actionable insights on how the entire industry may move towards achieving greater diversity. From giving LPs a greater understanding of the VCs they fund and VCs becoming more aware of how diverse their portfolios are, to founding teams gaining greater insights on the investors they approach, we hope the startup ecosystem will be impacted on numerous powerful levels.
Please join us alongside our esteemed panelists to hear how we can all take action to improve diversity in US VC and startups.
