Freshworks Inc.

We’ve had several venture capital investors on this podcast. But Loyal VC certainly stands out. 

The Toronto-based firm operates a global startup index fund with over 130 investments across more than 30 countries. It is designed to minimize systemic bias in the investment process, unlocking greater returns. 

Its diverse portfolio of founders, of whom currently over 30% are women CEOs and almost 30% are from emerging markets, includes 80% social impact entrepreneurs who leverage technology to address one or more of the United Nations sustainable development goals. 

In this episode, Kamal Hassan, the founding partner at Loyal VC talks to us about how they actively eliminate bias in investing.
