TAKING ACTION FOR CHANGE
An overwhelming volume of data and research into companies that hire more women, and have greater diversity and inclusion in their culture, shows they are more profitable.
McKinsey research on delivering growth through diversity shows that gender, ethnic and cultural diversity is correlated with growth. Businesses with a diverse executive team are 33 percent more likely to outperform their peers on profitability.
In a 2018 study of over 350 startups, Mass Challenge and BCG determined that businesses founded by women deliver higher revenue—more than 2 times as much per dollar invested—than those founded by men, making women-owned companies better investments for financial backers. The authors calculated that VCs could have made an additional $85 million over five years if they’d just invested equally in both the women- and men-founded startups.
We have a real chance now to build businesses based on blockchain with this parity at its foundation, bringing women into the executive team and supporting the development of female founders.
Why wait a moment longer?

The Impact of Diversity
There are a number of fantastic initiatives around the globe that are working towards similar goals. We are proud to support and collaborate with them. Together we can make real change.
Blockchain technology has the ability to fundamentally change the way we do business, adopting a more collaborative and competitive approach to problem solving. It’s opening up a swathe of new solutions and efficiencies, including those that could serve millions across the globe who have historically been underserved.
From changing the way we view money and providing financial capabilities to the unbanked, to providing identification to even the displaced amongst us, to disrupting supply chains, and establishing provenance throughout the entire journey of goods from origin to the end user and so much more, blockchain technology has the promise of disrupting every sector across both developed and undeveloped countries.
The very tenet of decentralisation over the traditional centralised operations, the idea of being able to spread the control and therefore power from one place across to many others opens up a new world of possibilities. Changing how we operate in the world, who controls our data on an individual scale through to how organisations are run, how businesses can collaborate together. It’s a radical mind shift in thinking and solving problems that historically without the trust of a centralised third party, wasn’t conceivable.
