A curated list of stories, news, and resources pertaining to female founders and leaders.
Women in Entrepreneurship,
Big thanks to everyone who was able to fill out the questionnaireabout you all so that I can hopefully better tailor this digest. We have nearly 10,000 subscribers, and our sample size from the responses is less than 100. So, responses are still welcome if you’d like to make sure you’re represented!
Of those who filled out the questionnaire, over 75% are founders, executives, or at the c-suite level. Nearly 75% are at seed, startup, or growth stage companies. Plus, 60% have at least 15 years of full-time work experience. Many of you wrote about working toward financial freedom, leading profitable and sustainable companies, successful exits, and investing. And I’ll be keeping all this in mind for future reads!
