About the organisers

Project #MovingForward is a social movement working to make policies in venture capital more inclusive and available. See CNN and WIRED.

We help VC firms to shape and publish policies related to harassment and discrimination that apply to third-parties like entrepreneurs, and publish those policies on our website VentureMovingForward.org.

We work with 135+ venture capital firms in 20 countries, including Atomico, Balderton, Octopus, Entrepreneur First, Sequoia, Greylock, Softbank, Y Combinator, GV, and many more.

The venue sponsor, Huckletree, is a coworking space and curated collective of ambitious entrepreneurs, startups and growing businesses in London and Dublin.

The drinks sponsor, Entrepreneur First, is a talent investor, founded in London in 2011 to support the world’s most ambitious individuals to build globally important companies. EF’s bespoke programme invests time and money in outstanding individuals, helping them to find a co-founder, develop an idea and create a high-growth technology company from scratch. They run a programme every 6 months in London and 5 other cities across the globe and are taking applications now.
