Committed to inclusion
We know how difficult it can be to grow a successful startup. Building innovative technology, recruiting the right talent, and landing customers are challenges that every founder faces. But for some entrepreneurs, including women, non-binary people, and BIPOC, there are additional hurdles that prevent them from breaking through.
At M12, we aspire to realize a VC and startup ecosystem more reflective of the global population that technology serves. Studies show that diverse leadership is positively correlated with innovation and financial returns. Beyond the business case, it’s the right thing to do.
As an industry, we’re just starting to chip away at deeply entrenched biases that determine who can be an investor or who gets access to capital. But at M12, we’re committed to progress.
Here are some of the initiatives and organizations we’ve supported in pursuit of a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive startup and venture ecosystem.
