Women Entrepreneurship
A curated list of stories, news, and resources pertaining to female founders and leaders.
Hello there,
Recently I’ve come across more + more conversations and awareness on mental health, burnouts and stress. As someone who has optimised their life following a burnout I highly welcome the growing movement in this field.

I don’t think people realise how much strength it takes to pull your own self out of a dark place mentally. So, if you’ve done that today or any day, I’m proud of you.

With Love,
Mevish

It’s been a little over one year since I first published a list of 35 Latina tech founders who had raised more than $1 million in funding. People had been telling me for years that we simply did not exist so we couldn’t be funded, placed on panels, highlighted on female founder lists, etc.
