VC Diversity Index 2018

This is our updated index of diversity in the venture capital industry. It’s the fourth time since 2015 we have published this list in order to put some hard numbers around the lack of diversity in venture capital. For three months, we gathered data on 713 senior investment professionals at the 102 biggest firms. Unlike other studies of VC diversity, we rank individual firms from best to worst. Those rankings are based on scores of gender and ethnic diversity. We provide scores for each of those categories while the overall score is an average of the two. In each case, the maximum score is 10 and the minimum score is zero.
