Activating Investors of Colors - Panel
Venture capital industry reports have shown a gap in the capital raised by diverse founders compared to that raised by conventional founders despite diverse teams having a higher probability of generating higher investment returns. Bringing investors of color to the forefront can decrease this asset allocation inequality and potentially increase startup investment portfolio returns. This panel will discuss the lack of diversity within the early-stage investment ecosystem, the importance of embracing investors from different backgrounds, highlighting actions, and opportunities to encourage more investors of color, focusing on women and other ethnicities, to participate in the early-stage investment ecosystem.
