Our Belief.

Entrepreneurs come from everywhere. Any background, geography, ethnicity, upbringing, or belief system. They are outliers, taking risks to solve big problems.

Entrepreneurialism and potential are equally distributed, but venture capital is not. Included builds diverse networks within excluded entrepreneurial communities to solve this inequality. We want outlier VCs to invest in outlier entrepreneurs.

If you want to pursue a career within the VC industry, Included VC was created for you.
Venture Capital Today.

The venture capital industry backs outliers and technology entrepreneurs who can change the world. However, traditional methods of pattern recognition and 'warm introductions' limit diversity and reduce exposure to many of the most talented entrepreneurs.

While teams with different skills and backgrounds are proven to outperform on almost every metric, diversity still falls far behind in both venture capital staff and investment diversity.

Included VC was created to address this gap.
1%

0.5%

Included VC x #BlackLivesMatter

Included VC is focused on opening the doors of Venture Capital for everyone – regardless of colour, gender, life experiences or beliefs. To provide access, opportunity and knowledge, to individuals from underrepresented backgrounds and overlooked communities.

We wholly commit to continually using our platform and voice to further work on long-term solutions to increase diversity within VC.

To show our ongoing commitment to aspiring VCs and founders alike, we pledged to undertaking three different initiatives for those who identify as Black.
