We’re SISTA’s investor ally
We don’t teach you anything folks, you know that since the inception, our vision and motto at daphni is the following: build da city for good!
It is not only a guiding light in our investment decisions, but is also proven in our social commitment. We’ve taken an in-depth look at how we can help our own industry, venture capital, as well as how we can help make the tech scene better.
For us, fostering minority inclusion in our ecosystem is more than urgent. We already carry this dynamic within us and are more than motivated to go further and work alongside associations to question, rethink investment practices, raise awareness, educate and encourage ecosystem players to act in the same direction. That’s why after signing their pledge in 2019, we are very happy to strengthen our partnership and become SISTA Investor Ally with the goal of having at least 25% female funded companies in our portfolio by 2025. If you don’t know SISTA let me remind you that this is an initiative co-founded by the brilliant Tatiana Jama, Valentine de Lasteyrie and Celine Lazorthes to support female entrepreneurship and equal funding in France, with the aim of increasing the funding allocated to female led startups.
And as inclusion is not only about women, at daphni we are also engaged in 3 other different initiatives since 2019, addressing these urgent and important topics of inclusion:
️ Wake Up Café to reintegrate prisoners by offering them training around digital. Our goal is to be a prescriber within our startups when they are trained.
CHAMS to train refugees in digital professions so that they can offer their services remotely to startups.
Included VC (European initiative) to promote the recruitment of minority profiles in investment teams in the Venture Capital world.Included VC (European initiative) to promote the recruitment of minority profiles in investment teams in the Venture Capital world.
Let’s build da city for good together, be allies and stand together to improve our world for the future generation! There is no planet B!
