The Cap Table Coalition aims to diversify the VC ecosystem by creating investment opportunities for Black, Latinx, LGBTQ+, Native American, women, and other traditionally marginalized investors.

Our Mission

The Coalition is made up of high-growth startups, VC firms, and emerging fund managers who want to work to close the racial wealth gap.

The Cap Table Coalition was inspired by the Act One Diversity Rider for VCs and Finix’s unique fundraising efforts to diversify startup cap tables. The Coalition’s goal is to make it as easy as possible for all companies and firms to join the movement.

How to get involved

High-Growth Startups

Take the Cap Table Pledge to diversify your company’s cap table and help rewrite the story about the lack of diversity in venture capital and technology as a whole.

Venture Capital Firms

Use the Diversity Rider to create more investment opportunities for emerging fund managers in your term sheets. Diverse funders improve investment returns while equalizing opportunity for wealth creation.

Investor Community

Calling all Black, Latinx, women, and LGBTQ+ check writers! Join our community to get access to new networks and proprietary deal flow and build your track record—and hopefully, start your own fund one day.

Why now?

Only 3% of venture capital investors are Black or Latinx.


Only 1.1% of all private funds have Black, Latinx, or women managers.


More than 80% of VC firms don't have a single black investor.


In 2020, 65% of venture firms still had zero female partners.


Now is the time to make a change.
