Ethnic diversity in UK’s boardrooms declining despite wealth of Asian talent in tech
Ed Vaizey, UK minister of state for culture, communications and creative industries took to the stage during a networking event for Diversity UK last week, heralding the contribution Asian tech and business leads have made to the UK. Yet the reality is that attempts to increase diversity in the boardrooms of the UK’s largest enterprises are declining. Research shows that non-white managers in the 7,700 positions below the boardroom of FTSE 100 firms fell to 5.7 percent from 6.2 percent a year ago; meaning the next generation of boardroom employees are beginning to look very similar. Meanwhile, the contributions of east Asian entrepreneurs in the UK tech scene were championed by UK minister Vaizey. The Top 100 Asian Stars in the UK tech list, sponsored by KPMG and startup incubator Wayra featured digital influencers like Dame Zarine Kharas, the CEO of Justgiving.com as well as Bindi Karia, vice president of Silicon Valley Bank, Reshma Sohoni, CEO of Seedcamp and Nikhil Shah, co-founder of MixCloud to name a few.

GQ AND EDITORIAL INTELLIGENCE'S 100 MOST CONNECTED WOMEN 2014
Last month, GQ brought you the 100 Most Connected Men in Britain - our annual PowerList made possible by the knowledge-networking business Editorial Intelligence, in association with Jaguar. It ruffled a few feathers (as all lists must) but it also introduced a new benchmark for those wanting to understand how the power to influence is truly disseminated - through the careful application of "soft power" rather than the hard sell of "top-down" influence.
On International Women's Day however, we wanted to remind you of the brilliant and dynamic figures who graced our list of the 100 Most Connected Women in Britain last December.

This is the astonishing feat that Asian woman Bindi Karia, VC/Emerging Business lead for Microsoft UK, has achieved since the launch of the company's UK BizSpark program in November 2008. Karia attributes her success in the field to being "in the right place at the right time", although she acknowledges that working for the leading software company in the world helps.

Tech.eu, ‘Queen of Startups’ Bindi Karia leaves Silicon Valley Bank to help European founders in different ways
Bindi Karia, a longtime fixture in the European tech scene (although she was actually raised in Canada!), left her role at Silicon Valley Bank last week "to pursue new entrepreneurial opportunities". As a Vice President based in London, Karia helped shape Silicon Valley Bank's early-stage banking efforts in Europe, with a relatively recent focus on corporate and emerging VCs. Before joining SVB in late 2012, Karia spent a few years at Microsoft UK as its ‘Venture Capital/Emerging Business Lead’. I had a brief conversation with Bindi to see what comes next, but she said it was too soon to discuss her plans in a lot of detail, only that she will stick to her passion for entrepreneurship and helping out early-stage businesses, particularly when it comes to connecting startups with VCs and Corporates. One thing is for sure: there's no chance she's departing the European startup ecosystem, so stay tuned.

The Guardian, Why women entrepreneurs are far less likely to be funded
The first quarter of 2015 saw a 66% year-on-year boost in the influx of venture capital (VC) funds to the UK, standing at an impressive £459m. According to research from Oxford Economics, the digital tech industry will contribute £18bn to London’s economy alone by the end of this year. This is sit up and take notice stuff. The reaction to a recent episode of my video series Digital Futures, entitled ‘What it’s really like to be a woman in tech’, genuinely caught me by surprise. Views and social engagement skyrocketed and analytics revealed 75% of the viewers were men.

Vanity Fair, Tech Giants: Does monopoly have to be a Dirty Word
Andrew Keen: Author of ‘The Internet is Not the Answer’ Bindi Karia: Vice president at Silicon Valley Bank Frank Pasquale: Author of ‘The Black Box Society: The Secret Algorithms that Control Money and Information Adam Cohen: Google’s head of economic policy in Europe. Kamal Ahmed (chair): Business editor at the BBC
Four digital giants have attained a sufficient level of success (or is it notoriety?) as to deserve a collective acronym. The companies that make up GAFA – Google, Apple, Facebook, and Amazon – among a handful of others, have come to dominate their respective fields to the virtual exclusion of all others. Is this a result of their unparalleled competence? Or are monopolies the inevitable outcome of digital markets? Google’s Adam Cohen suggests it is a contradiction in terms to speak of monopolies in the plural – how could several competing firms uniquely control the same space? And don’t they also act as incubators? On the other hand, why do these behemoths purport to be offering us their services for free, while collecting abundant data about our every preference and tendency?
