If significant pools of capital are finally pried open, we’ll unleash a currently underutilized talent pool to address real world problems in new and more creative ways with diverse perspectives at the table. When women and multicultural entrepreneurs succeed economically and participate professionally to their fullest abilities, we all benefit — children, families, communities and the economy — in untold ways. Diversity has a multiplier effect.

As part of my series about “the five things we need to do to close the VC gender gap” I had the pleasure of interviewing Edith Dorsen, a Founder of Women’s Venture Capital Fund and the Managing Partner of its successor, WomensVCFund ll. At a time where there was scant interest in women entrepreneurs, Edith recognized the capital gap confronting female founders and co-founded the Women’s Venture Capital Fund — driven by the belief that leadership diversity is a major competitive advantage. It was the first VC fund in the country to focus on Series A stage startups in which senior leadership included both women and men.
