Our Commitment To Diversity
We focus on diversity because while talent is evenly distributed, opportunity is not.
Technori welcomes all entrepreneurs, but we especially encourage founders with diverse teams and backgrounds to apply to present because providing more talent with the chance to build companies creates a stronger economy.
How we affect this is important; female, minority and first-time founders are notoriously underserved by the investor community – we equalize the fundraising landscape by providing founders of all backgrounds with access to startup capital and media exposure.
Why What We Do Matters
Over the next ten years more than half of current S&P 500 companies will be replaced with technology driven, high-growth companies that haven’t even been formed yet. But, those startups will need money to grow and many of the founders of the future are not going to come from the top 1%, which means they’ll need your help to get funded.
Silicon Valley is an amazing place that has funded startups for decades, but its monoculture has become increasingly apparent in recent years. And, with tech hubs like Chicago, Austin, Boston and others growing at a rapid pace due to access to lower costs and more diverse economies — the time for change is now!
Fortunately, equity crowdfunding opened the door for those previously excluded from startup investing to fund the companies they believe in. This makes room for more entrepreneurs — because in a world where anyone can fund anyone, more ideas get off the ground.
