StartupDelta is becoming TechLeap (.NL), the next step in pushing the Dutch Startup Ecosystem forward. An optimal startup ecosystem is a diverse ecosystem. In order for the Netherlands to accelerate as a startup ecosystem, we are in need of talent. Although it is well known that diverse teams function better, there is little diversity to be found in founding and managing teams of startups.
This joint initiative by TechLeap.NL and supporting VCs, partly due to the round table discussion with Mona Keijzer, has called for a taskforce in diversity. This is how the diversity statement is initiated.
