Once again, Cardi B is speaking my truth…

- We aren’t talking about diversity, and if we do, it’s in hushed tones

- We should be screaming to the rooftops that there are financial returns being left on the table due to our lack of these conversations (in fact, only Digital Undivided, Kapor Capital, and Intel Capital are really making waves here).

- There should be at least 50 Seed deals/year in minority-owned startups, if it’s to be fairly compared to U.S. demographics

- Established firms should hire more women and poc check writers and decision makers

- Savvy LPs should and are going to get more and more insistent that funds are allocated more fairly and broadly

Help, or get out of the way.
