Diversity Event

9 October 2019

14:30 - 19:00 hours

Hotel Arena - Amsterdam

Since the launch of #FundRight in July, a total of 30 VCs- with over 1 billion euros under management– have now committed to getting more diversity in their own partner teams and the companies they invest in. A huge step for the Dutch ecosystem!


To kickstart the #FundRight movement and celebrate diversity, the VC-partners of FundRight and TechLeap.NL organize the first #FundRight Diversity event: Match made in heaven.


Imagine. One of Amsterdam’s finest hotels. Packed with other VCs & founders, leading in diversity. There will be inspiring lectures and networking opportunities with startups with diverse founding teams, female founders and VCs committed to making a change. This is your chance to make your ‘match made in heaven’.
