Diversity to Build a Better Future

Entrepreneurs, corporate executives and emerging technologies are driving our future. However, among corporations, VCs and angel investors, the early stage capital decision makers remain embarrassingly skewed. Earlier this year Highline Beta and Female Funders published the Women in Venture Report – including data gathered covering 300+ institutional and corporate VC firms across North America.

The report has received extensive media coverage, acknowledging the role that investors and funding plays in solving industry problems that matter for a diverse population.

Growth through diversity: Female Funders investment education program

Highline Beta has integrated its Female Funders investment education program into their overall fund operations, resulting in a more diverse group of investors, executives and founders at the table. This unlocks new pools of capital and expertise for startups and investors across the broader venture capital ecosystem, while driving better returns for our portfolio.
