Here at 500, we recognize that diversity and inclusion help to support creativity and innovation: they are an essential ingredient in a successful company. We are committed to encouraging diversity and inclusion in our company, community, and ecosystem.

  • 38% of the companies have female representation on their board
  • 49% of the companies have women in management positions 
  • 47% of the companies have women in c-suite with ownership

In southeast Asia under 500 Durians, 56 women-founded and led companies are paving the way for a better future. Their companies are changing the way we move, live, and interact. We depend on them more than ever to rebuild our shared future.

In lieu of International’s Women’s Day 2021, we are organizing a Clubhouse. It will be featuring female founders and entrepreneurs from SEA. People like Gitta Amelia, CEO Avatar, Anisa Wibi, Co-founder and COO Mycotech, Yazmeen Anshary, Founder & CEO Avant, Cha-Ly Koh, CEO Urban Metry.
