Diversity doesn’t just matter, it also pays off in higher returns. According to the latest studies by PwC and BCG, startups led by female founders or co-founders perform 10% – 35% better over time and more likely to have IPOs and profitable acquisitions, despite being comparatively underfunded.
During the Fall’19, we launched our Women in Tech Batch to contribute to closing the gap between female lead startups and venture capital, which at the end of the day will result in increasing sustainability and profits in the global tech ecosystem.
It was an amazing experience. 7 talented teams graduated from the Batch and continued their journey with us.
From what we noticed, female founders care more about the impact and sustainability of their products. That’s why one of our Portfolio 2020 goals is to onboard at least 50% of female-founded startups. We see it as an opportunity to empower exceptional teams from the globe, to boost their expertise, expand their network and offer them funding opportunities from the most credible EU/USA VCs, angels, and institutional investors.
