About the event
During this online StartupTalk, we’ll discuss diversification in startups, why you should care as an early stage founder and what you can do to stay on top of diversification. It’s a 30-minute fireside chat between Nicolas Blier-Silvestri, co-founder & CEO at Platypus.io, and Helle Uth, Senior Investment Director at PreSeed Ventures.
Invest in the future
Too often, we find that the diversity-talk stalls on gender equality. We’re not talking down its importance, but we would like to approach the topic from a broader perspective, discussing the benefits and possibilities from also diversifying on other demographic parameters. We’ll also cover just how you can design your organization/startup/culture for diversity on the get-go as an early stage founder.
As always at PreSeed Academy, we like to pull some strings and team up with knowledgeable founders. And who else than Nicolas Blier-Silvestri, founder of Platypus, could be more relevant? Our very own Senior Investment Director Helle Uth will be moderating the 30-minute fireside chat.
