Diversity & Inclusion


Much is being done to increase diversity and inclusion in the startup ecosystem. This initiative is us doing our part. We’re working to tear down barriers and welcome underrepresented founders in our community - there’s plenty of room. And a bit of data supporting why, we've still got work to do:

→ 6,1% of all venture capital is allocated mixed teams - 92,6% goes to all male teams. This has been largely stagnant since 2017. (Unconventional Ventures)

→ 62,8% of ethnic minorities in Denmark say they experience discrimination at their job in the form of comments and jokes about their ethnic heritage, skin colour, language, or religion. (Lige Adgang)



During Diversity Week 2024, one fundamental challenge was repeated again and again. The lack of data. so in response to that - we've launched a Diversity Database of all available diversity data (in a startup context).

This resource is, and will always be, accessible and available for everyone in our community.

So, go ahead, give that fabulous pink button a little love tap and jump into the database 🖤

Diversity Week 2024

Feb. 5-9th

Diversity Week 2024 was a week where we zoomed in on the multifaceted theme of diversity. We, along with our partners, hosted a series of events throughout the week, delving deep into the various complex aspects of diversity.

During this week, we initiated conversations about the challenges our community faces, explored potential solutions for integrating diversity into our daily lives, and advocated for structural changes necessary for a more inclusive environment.

We welcomed underrepresented founders, community members, and allies who were keen on understanding how we can collectively foster a more inclusive startup community.
