In company with the experts:  Ezechi Britton, Founding Partner of Impact X Capital Partners LLP and Founder of Code Untapped

 

14% of the UK population is BAME, but less than 4% has gone to BAME founders.

Why is this the case and what does it mean for diverse talent, securing VC funding and opportunities for under-represented groups?

These are exactly the topics covered in this 15-min interview with Ezechi Britton, along with:

  • How he started out as a developer, before becoming a tech founder through his first venture Neyber and then a venture capitalist
  • Why he supports under-represented technologists to find their voice and role in technology
  • Why he wants to use his platform and the work he does to highlight the exceptional talent which exists within under-represented groups
  • Why finding diverse talent is not just the role of recruitment
  • What stops other VCs accessing diverse talent (clue: it’s about the effort they spend looking for it)
  • The business benefits of accessing talent which has a global-wide view
