Building a More Inclusive Startup Culture

Leading women in tech continue to speak out about injustices in working with tech executives and investors, but gender and racial imbalances remain. Meanwhile, Paris, London and other European cities are pouring money into innovative startups. This panel will explore how government, big tech and investors can help build a more inclusive and innovative startup ecosystem. The panelists will also discuss getting past the unconscious biases of VCs that tend to invest in founders who resemble them.

Additional Supporting Materials

Questions

  1. How can industry and government help to increase capital and improve gender, racial and geographic diversity for startups?
  2. When should startups look outside of the United States for investors and funding?
  3. How can we ensure that minority women are included in discussions on access, funding and other issues around “women in tech?”
