Tech startups are socioeconomically, a middle, upper-middle, and upper-class game. This should not come as a surprise to anyone.
However I do come across many persistent and smart young founders from diverse backgrounds; some without the safety nets or degree's from redbrick uni's.
The challenge they face is getting recognised (lack of social capital and soft skills) and funding and advisors to get started.
I wonder what VC firms/Angel investors/Accelerators & Incubators can do to reach out and give some of these founders who might have great socially impactful ideas (problem's they encounter in thier daily lives) an opportunity too.
What do you think?
