This platform is the brainchild of a disruptive group of Silicon Valley-based innovators and partners who believe in closing the funding gap while democratizing investor access for underrepresented founders. With a variety of backgrounds in creating and powering both local [US] and global funding platforms, this network of investors and innovators has made a humble attempt to simplify the complex problem that most founders in the marketplace face when attempting to fund their innovation - access to the money while also creating a clear path to diverse deal flow for investors-at-large. No more excuses for the funding gap. 

 

The DYVVYD concept is simple – a smart, seamless, process for founders to gain access to the best investors in the industry committed to diversity and inclusion, with D&I as a distinct thesis. In turn, investors driven to diversify their portfolio and connect to untapped markets can do so through the marketplace portal where profiles, pitch decks and pitch videos of diverse startups can be easily accessed.

 

We believe in 'innovation-for-all' and by its funding, all communities of society [and all consumers of technology] can be equally represented by the solutions created to solve their own needs in their very own backyard.

THE CONCEPT

We're using the power of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence to power our community and connectivity.

THE 'D&I' PLATFORM 

  THE 1ST DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION  INVESTMENT PLATFORM & DIGITAL COMMUNITY POWERED BY A.I,

DEDICATED SOLELY TO A CULTURE OF BELONGING AS A DISTINCT THESIS IN THE DUAL STARTUP < > VENTURE CAPITAL INDUSTRY

YOUR ACCESS.

POWERED UP.

REPRESENTATION HAS NEVER BEEN

SO REWARDING. AND SO RELEVANT.

 

 

 

We're getting dead serious about D&I; and we're doing something about it. We're not a hashtag, a movement or a cause; however while we're ardent supporters of these campaigns, we're making intentional efforts a step beyond, by actively distributing the odds that underrepresented founders succeed at funding and representation, by putting startup teams directly infront of those who write the checks.

DYVVYD is an intentional AI-driven digital platform whose creators believe in the power of diversity in tech, equality in representation and the funding of innovation that directly reflects the society we live in and its impact on creative problem solving through technology.

Diversity fuels innovation; the data proves it. We are powering the movement for creative problem solving by the funding of underrepresented founders and overlooked startups.

We are excited to be one of the first dedicated platforms using AI to power diversity and inclusion in the dual startup and venture capital industry.

WE HAVE RECEIVED LOTS OF INTEREST AS WE BUILD OUT THIS REVOLUTIONARY A.I POWERED MARKETPLACE TO HELP POWER DIVERSITY & INCLUSION IN THE STARTUP < > VC INDUSTRY.
