This is an exciting topic! As a VC investing in social startups in India with a gender focus, my view is that gender diversity plays an important role when it comes to and is strongly linked to women's empowerment. While this is also an important aspect in more developed countries where the role of women is already strengthened, I feel that the discussion should rather be about masculine and feminine character traits instead of gender. Gender seems to be the most obvious "feature" in terms of being easily observable. This might only shift the discussion to the question of "what are typical masculine and feminine character traits"... so we might end up discussing what the character trait diversity is that we want to see among founders.
