It’s time for change. 


Statistics have shown that BIPOC women are underrepresented across the spectrum of venture capital; from venture investment to hiring at all levels across venture firms. In the last 5 years, with increased diversity efforts, issues related to overlooking intersectionality have left BIPOC women behind. 

This pledge is a first step in our collective commitment towards investing and hiring BIPOC women within venture capital.

Black Founders Matter stands with BIPOC women. We hope you’ll join us in signing this pledge.

The 25 by 25 VC Diversity Pledge is a commitment for venture capital firms that by 2025, 25% of all firm investments will be dedicated to BIPOC women founders; 25% of all firm hires- across the firm- will be BIPOC women.
