Finding Purpose & Being Inspired to Build Diversity with Kevin Withane


Getting Out of the Topic and Into the Age of Action

In a thought-provoking episode of our podcast, we had the pleasure of speaking with Kevin Withane, the Founder and Managing Partner of Diversity X. Diversity X is a community and venture capital firm that is dedicated to supporting underestimated founders who are making a difference in their communities and the world. Kevin has an impressive background, having worked in various sectors across the globe. He is a strong advocate for building a sustainable world and promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Diversity X aims to empower underrepresented founders and start-ups. The firm is committed to investing in companies that are tackling real-world problems and creating a positive impact. Kevin firmly believes in the power of diverse teams to drive innovation and offer sustainable solutions. To support these founders, Diversity X provides not just financial backing, but also mentorship, resources, and connections.

In addition to their support for founders, Diversity X actively engages with the community to foster conversations around diversity and inclusion in the start-up ecosystem. They believe in walking the talk and being intentional in their efforts to create a more inclusive and diverse industry.

During our conversation with Kevin, we also discovered his early fascination with TV lawyers, inspired by shows like “LA Law”. This passion for law eventually led him to pursue a career in the legal field. Kevin shares key moments from his leadership journey, including his entrepreneurial ventures as a young person and his experiences after leaving the corporate world.
