Diversity VC launches “The Standard” during London Tech Week as powered by OneTech and Diversio on the 9th of September to set a benchmark for diversity and investment best practices. This event is the launch of a new assessment and certification that provides VCs with the tools they need to open their networks and make funding available to underrepresented founders.

The certification sends a signal that a fund follows best diversity and inclusion (D&I) practices for VC and offers VCs with the resources needed to cultivate an environment where founders and colleagues from all the backgrounds feel they belong in the ecosystem.

Special Guests Include-

– William McQuillian – Partner, Frontline Ventures.

– Laura McGee – CEO of Diversio.
