With the ambition of creating a more diverse ecosystem, they agreed to work on 3 commitments:
All participating VCs (investment team, advisory board and investment committee) will have a diverse team, including 35% women.
35% of the portfolio companies have all female or mixed management teams.
A considerable percentage of (co-)investments will go to companies (co-)founded by a woman.
More and more VCs wanted to be part of that mission, and the group has grown from 25 to 53, now representing a large part of the Dutch investment community and dealflow. Techleap.nl has been collecting their data and has summarised the takeaways of 2021 in this factsheet.
With the target year of 2023 approaching, Fundright will join international best practices, by joining the community of Diversity VC, a global movement striving for more Diversity, Equity and Inclusivity in venture capital. Together with its community, Diversity VC has set up a global benchmark for DEI best practices in the VC industry. Learn more about Diversity VC and how to become a part of their community here.
