Ethnicity data is not (yet) available at a European-wide level but given the size of the UK venture market, it provides particularly glaring proof of the lack of ethnic diversity in European tech. The data challenge is also present across other types of diversity. Over the past few years, Dealroom has taken huge strides forward in tracking the state of play on gender diversity. The difference between men-only teams and mixed/women-only teams continues to be huge. Men-only teams captured 91% of all capital raised and 85% of all rounds in 2020.
