We are excited to announce SheSyndicate's first grant-funded research project in partnership with the Diana International Research Institute and the Center for Women's Entrepreneurial Leadership.
The Diana International Research Institute (DIRI)
The Diana International Research Institute (DIRI) is the premier global research institute dedicated to being the source of all research, policy, practitioner, and educator information for women’s entrepreneurship. By supporting and connecting a worldwide community of stakeholders, we bring together the brightest minds conducting, translating, and disseminating rigorous research and data about women’s entrepreneurship that can directly impact teaching, policy, and practice.
Together, the Diana Institute and the Capital Parity Project, led by Madelaine Czufin and Storey Whalen, will be investigating the current practices in capital allocation and the decision-making behind it within venture capital and private equity. They will seek to better understand why the lack of diversity in funding persists and how to increase equity in investment practice.
SheSyndicate has committed incubation funding to Phase 1 of the Capital Parity Project’s research phase to identify the core issues faced by Female Founders and Fund Managers and find strategies to improve equitable access to capital.
Stay tuned for more of their findings over the coming year!
Congratulations, Madelaine & Storey!
