About our 2020 report
As a tech for good investor, supporting and delivering positive impact is core to our investment approach. Our annual impact and learning reports provide us the opportunity to share our journey, progress and reflections on our performance against that. Each year we aim to build on the insights from the previous year's report.

This year's report sees us breaking new ground with two VC industry firsts. Under the section 'Our commitment to founder diversity' we believe that we will be the first European VC to share such extensive diversity and inclusion data on our portfolio. While our section 'Unintended consequences in tech for good' sees us become the first VC globally to map and share our portfolio's impact risks.

Elsewhere in the report, we share how BGV and our portfolio companies responded to the challenges of 2020, in addition to our highlights of the year. We also continue to pull back the curtain on how BGV and our portfolio measures and manages impact. From stories of how our portfolio founders validate their impact to how BGV aligns with the Impact Management Project's Impact Class Matrix.

Finally, as one of the first VC firms to have published data on our own team's diversity and inclusion last year, we build on this by sharing insights on how we bake these practices into BGV as a business.

As pioneers of tech for good investing we see it as our responsibility to be as transparent as possible, so that others can learn from our efforts. We hope that our insights from 2020 contribute to the continued growth of a thriving tech for good investment ecosystem.
