As McKinsey In, we aim to take pervasive societal inequity head on by supporting startup founders who face systemic barriers and network and resource opportunity gaps at each stage of growth. Equitable access is key to driving innovation and unlocking economic gain. We counsel underrepresented1 startup founders on their toughest strategic and operational challenges to help them achieve sustainable, inclusive growth at scale. Beyond the larger macroeconomic gains, closing the gap is the right thing to do and will lead to stronger communities and richer business landscapes.

women, etc. among different backgrounds
