The Newton Venture Program is a joint venture between London Business School and LocalGlobe VC with a clear vision: by 2030 venture investors will exceed 50% people from currently overlooked and underrepresented groups.
Up until now, venture investing has typically overlooked too many and served too few, which as a result has influenced whose problems get solved in the world. Our urgent mission is to disrupt the ecosystem through increasing the diversity of venture investors and developing them so they have equal opportunity to thrive.
We provide a first-of-its-kind investor training program for investors who fuel the global innovation ecosystem: VCs, LPs, angels, accelerators, and tech transfer officers worldwide. At least 50% of each cohort will be female, and at least 50% will be from Black and minority ethnic backgrounds.
