Research shows that diverse leadership teams achieve significantly better financial results and are more innovative.

LGBTQ+ founders are strong leaders because they have managed to overcome adversity and they are backed by a strong community.

Are you looking for funding?

Are you an LGBTQ+-led start-up looking for venture capital funding in the next 12 months? 

We invest across sectors in seed and series A companies with LGBTQ+ representation on the leadership team, primarily in Europe and the U.S. We prefer to co-invest or co-lead and typically don’t take board seats.

We’d like to meet teams early. Contact us directly and don’t waste your time waiting for an introduction.


Identity Ventures was founded by former BCG partner and FinTech founder Til Klein together with the experienced family office investor and serial entrepreneur Jochen Beutgen.  In the U.S., LGBTQ+ venture investing is already well established. We bring LGBTQ+ investment to Europe.
