 START UPS FOUNDED BY WOMEN are less likely to get funded, we know that.

But who decides, WHERE THE MONEY FLOWS

How high is the SHARE OF WOMEN in DECISION-MAKING POSITIONS in investment firms?

Vision

More frequent and higher investments in startups by female founders. Equality in the startup and venture capital scene.

Mission

30% share of women in decision-making positions at 30% of the most important capital investors.

Why

With 30over30, we initially set a target of at least 30% women in decision-making positions at at least 30% of investment firms and banks in the DACH region. We initially focused on women because attributions are possible here via publicly available data (photos, first names). However, for further analysis and diversity, it is necessary to expand to all diversity characteristics. A basis for this can be delivered by the Charta der Vielfalt .

We are convinced that we all benefit from gender equality and more diversity in companies - it is essential for an innovative and sustainable future.

Why not 50%? Because at around 30% a critical mass of female executives is created, which automatically attracts more women.

First move

As our first move, we took a closer look at the status quo and 172 Investors regarding of their percentage of women in decision-making positions.
