Techstars is committed to having a meta-impact on diversity in tech startups through leadership on this important issue.
Techstars is committed to having a meta-impact on diversity in tech startups through leadership on this important issue. Through our network of hundreds of companies and startup programs worldwide, we have a massive opportunity to influence this on a large scale.

We believe it is vitally important to address diversity and inclusion early — as company culture is being cultivated — and to weave it into the fabric of company identity. We are encouraging an entire generation of the best entrepreneurs around the world to take this issue seriously.

Techstars is working to improve opportunities for women and underrepresented minorities throughout our global ecosystem and to be a leader in inclusive entrepreneurship. We know that these founders not only bring a diverse perspective and a wealth of innovative ideas — but according to recent research— companies with female founders often outperform their male peers.

We will regularly publish progress on our diversity initiatives.Check out our blog to keep tabs on how we're doing.
Ethnically diverse companies were 35 percent more likely to financially outperform those in the bottom quartile for gender or racial and ethnic diversity.
