Increasing Accelerator Opportunities for Women & Minority-Owned Startups

23 min June 22, 2021

Bias is inherently prevalent in the world, however, FOMO and greed will always overcome bias. It's not a secret that the world of venture capital is not a level playing field & tends to favor a small sect of society. Brian Mac Mahon from the accelerator, Expert Dojo, is part of the disruption to this pattern. Expert Dojo is passionate about startups and found great success in working with businesses from a diverse range of backgrounds and geographic locations. Even though women are underrepresented as entrepreneurs, to begin with, they receive a disproportionately small share of VC funding: 2.3% for all-female founding teams and 10%.4 for mixed-gender founding teams. What does this mean for subscription startups? And what can we do about it? SUBTA is committed to becoming more representative of the entire SUBTA community which means we want to highlight some of the people, companies, and overarching issues that might be under-represented.
