In 2016, we committed to making diversity one of our key strategic priorities at Techstars.
As a part of this ongoing effort, check out our new video where we talk about why addressing diversity early in your company growth matters and how diverse perspectives fuel innovation.
Listen to our founders talk about how unconscious bias and pattern matching affected their fundraising efforts and how we can work together to change things.
