June 24, 2020 EcoVadis ‏‏‎

"After decades of underfunding and centuries of systemic discrimination, Black founders, Black CEOs, and Black-led venture firms are only beginning to get the attention they deserve. One major challenge they all face is how to connect eager VCs and CEOs. Posts on LinkedIn, Twitter, and blogs help raise the visibility of Black-led companies, but they are ephemeral and not scalable," McConnell wrote. 

"The startup world needs a central place where the two sides can meet for fundraising, building relationships, or mentorship. Crunchbase is uniquely positioned to be that meeting place. That's why we've focused our resources on centralizing and highlighting data about companies with diverse leadership and the investors who fund them. Introducing: Diversity Spotlight."
