1/ Recently we published #TheGapTable and called on the industry to measure diversity of cap tables. We suspected women are vastly underrepresented as owners in tech startups. Thanks to our partnership with @CartaInc, we now have the data to prove it. https://t.co/XvQRCL5N7f
2/ Carta analyzed 6,000 startup cap tables by gender. We believe this is the *first* large scale equity study of its kind. The results are stark. Women make up 33% of the founder and employee workforce, but guess what % of the equity value they hold?
3/ Women hold just 9% of employee and founder equity value. Men own 91%. Let that sink in.
Let’s break it down:
Women make up 13% of founders, but capture just 6% of founder equity value.
Women make up 35% of employees, but hold just 20% of employee equity value. pic.twitter.com/B1gslSJkqR
