Bitget, a leading cryptocurrency exchange, has launched an initiative called Blockchain4Her, aimed at promoting gender diversity and inclusivity in the blockchain industry. The company has pledged $10 million to support female entrepreneurship and recognize women’s achievements in the blockchain and Web3 spaces. Bitget will offer incubation programs, mentorship, pitch competitions, and networking opportunities for female-founded startups. The initiative aims to create a more inclusive funding landscape and empower women to succeed in the blockchain industry. Bitget is also inviting industry leaders to join as ambassadors to support gender diversity in blockchain.
The blockchain industry continues to face significant gender bias, with recent studies showing that female-led blockchain startups only secured 6% of total funding. Bitget aims to address this imbalance by raising awareness and fostering collective efforts towards inclusivity. The Blockchain4Her initiative will provide comprehensive support and resources for female entrepreneurs, including tailored incubation programs and pitch competitions.
Bitget’s commitment to gender diversity is part of a broader vision to create a more equitable and inclusive future through the power of blockchain. The company has also invested $10 million in the Blockchain4Youth project, which aims to inspire the younger generation to embrace blockchain technology. Bitget believes that diversity and inclusion are vital for sustainable growth in the rapidly evolving blockchain industry.
