Webinar: Advancing more equitable and sustainable societies - responsibilities and unique opportunities for venture capital firms

See all tags

Date & time: 26 January, 17:00 GMT

Co-convened by Stanford Angels & Entrepreneurs, Stanford Angels of the United Kingdom, Stanford Angels & Entrepreneurs India, Stanford Angels & Entrepreneurs SoCal, Stanford Angels & Entrepreneurs of Texas, Ulu Ventures, Business & Human Rights Resource Centre (BHRRC) and UN Joint SDG Fund.

Venture capitalists play a decisive role in shaping the future of technology, and with it the future of our economies, policy, and societies. As VC firms provide critical early-stage funding for new and emerging initiatives, they have a unique opportunity to support projects that contribute to advancing the UN Sustainable Development Goals, human rights, and a healthy environment, and fund diverse entrepreneurial teams, while minimizing funding projects that result in harm to society. By increasing diversity in VC firms, they will be more likely to support startups that consider how new technologies will impact women, and other groups.
