This year, we intend to infuse into those around us a greater awareness of both the power of diversity and the value of discovering innovations created by underrepresented founders around the world. We're excited to highlight what the movement towards a diverse startup ecosystem looks like around the globe, as we power into the new year with Europe's Fair Funders.
We built this list for the benefit of the global investment community and founders seeking funding, and we are curate firms that are not only committed to the causes of diversity, inclusion, and transparency, but also making a consistent and determined effort to increase venture capital investment in companies that value and exemplify diverse leadership, and implementing policies in writing and/or setting goals for hiring and funding of women, people of color, and other underrepresented groups.
