WE SUPPORT DIVERSITY
IN START-UPS

THE FUTURE OF
START-UPS IS DIVERSE

At Found Diverse, we work to advance diversity in start-ups. By harnessing the full potential of talents of all genders, ages, and backgrounds, the start-up scene will not only become more inclusive – it will also better fit the varied challenges we are facing. Change is necessary. And it’s here to stay!

TOGETHER FOR A
BETTER TOMORROW

Found Diverse is an NGO with the purpose of advancing inclusion and diversity to maximise the potential in the establishment and growth of new companies. Change has begun but it isn’t finished in the blink of an eye. We need to join forces to accelerate the shift from mono- to multi-culture.

We provide a collaboration platform for a range of initiatives working towards our common goal: advancing diversity in the start-up scene to ensure that everyone will have access to talent, innovation, and funding.
