AdaCon 2023 

Join a global movement in inclusive investing


Tuesday 10th October 2023 from 18:00 BST

We believe that venture capital & tech should be fair & equitable

VC can feel like a closed shop. Too often VCs do not take an inclusive approach to investment, missing out on great talent & ideas, and discouraging founders from recognising that their ideas can change the world. Now, more than ever, is the time for us to come together to back the world’s most extraordinary talent addressing the world’s biggest challenges.

Who is AdaCon for?

  • Founders facing barriers on their road to their first institutional round.

  • Founders building for large underserved markets, groups and communities.

  • Tech ecosystem leaders and supporters driving change including VCs, LPs, politicians, policy makers & journalists.

  • Everyone who is interested in making venture and tech more inclusive.
