Happy Amsterdam Pride week! Even though the city has to do without its world-famous Canal Parade yet again, this week is a great moment to reflect on inclusivity within the Amsterdam startup scene. While the startup ecosystem is pushing for more diversity in many ways, this week is as good as any to check in with the LGBT community in the ecosystem.
LGBT in startup ecosystem
Diversity comes in all shapes and sizes, and there are many initiatives in the ecosystem stimulating equality for women, immigrants or people of colour on the work floor. When it comes to the LGBTIQ+ community in tech, however, not much seems to be going on. Did the Amsterdam startup ecosystem completely solve the diversity issue when it comes to the LGBT community? Or did it stop caring?
