Disrupt Africa wants female VCs and angel investors on the continent to give their views on gender diversity within the tech ecosystem, with the findings to be revealed as part of its groundbreaking report on the subject.
Since launching its research arm in 2016, Disrupt Africa has built up a significant portfolio of publications, most notably the African Tech Startups Funding Report, Finnovating for Africa, and deep-dives into various leading startup ecosystems, available free for all via open-sourcing initiatives with various partners across the continent’s tech ecosystem.
Its next publication, which will be its 21st in total, is the company’s most ambitious ecosystem research project to date – focusing on gender equality in the African tech startup landscape, “Diversity Dividend: Exploring Gender Equality in the African Tech Ecosystem”.
The report will contain both quantitative and qualitative data – quantifying female founders and VCs in the ecosystem, as well as their access to funding and opportunities, and polling them directly about their experiences within the ecosystem. Female VCs and angel investors that want their experiences to be taken into account can complete this short questionnaire.
