We surveyed 35 startups in our portfolio: 22 in the Americas, 11 in EMEA, and 2 based in Asia. Here’s a breakdown of what we discovered:

Diversity & Inclusion: For startups, fostering a diverse and inclusive environment from the start can give them a leg-up on the competition as they grow and scale. 51% of the companies have a female or diverse founder, and 60% have a woman or minority on their board. However, only 11% of companies reported >50% of company ownership is held by women and minorities combined.
