Proud to be founding partner of the #FundRight initiative
We, the undersigned Dutch VCs, believe in equal access to funding and opportunity for all founders, irrespective of their background or gender.
A prevalent example is that currently only ~2% of all Dutch VC capital is invested in female-founded or female co-founded companies. This is despite the fact that research shows that diverse teams positively impact performance.
Moreover, investing in diversity is the right thing to do.We want to create the optimal startup ecosystem in the Netherlands. To achieve this we need to maximize diversity for all our talent.With this statement, we take a stance to #FundRight and invite other parties to join. Together we can make a difference in achieving a diverse startup ecosystem!
