At FutureX, we’re big advocates of always coming back to your purpose and values. You might have an excellent product or service, but can you be sure they’ll never become redundant or irrelevant?
We all know that things need to change. From the climate crisis to social issues, there’s lots of work to be done to make the world a better place. It requires organisation, money and hard work. But there’s one thing that comes before all of that: imagination.
Picture an entrepreneur, and you may well imagine a caffeine-fuelled whirlwind who burns the candle at both ends. Setting up and running a business is hard work – there’s no doubt about it. But does that mean business owners should push themselves to the limits to achieve success?
The world of venture capital is known for being overwhelmingly white. In fact, Deloitte’s 2021 VC Human Capital Survey found that just 4% of investment professionals at VC firms are Black.
When you consider that Black and Latinx founders received just 2.6% of all VC funding raised in 2020, it’s not hard to join the dots between a lack of diversity and the lack of funding for Black-owned business.
