The buzz: “It's actually women who are creating and leading some of the most established and promising companies overall” (@DrewAHendricks). Female entrepreneurs’ accusations of sexual harassment from male VCs and others, are symptoms of entrepreneur ecosystem gender bias. Female startup founders received $1.46B in VC funding (2016) vs $58.2B to males. Does Silicon Valley mirror global tech-intensive industries? How to access power and capital for all? The experts speak. Adam Quinton, Lucas Point Ventures: “[In politics] If you want anything said, ask a man; if you want anything done, ask a woman” (Margaret Thatcher). Sharon Vosmek, Astia: “Prejudice is a burden that confuses the past, threatens the future and renders the present inaccessible" (Dr Maya Angelou). Dr. Patti Fletcher, SAP Successfactors: “There is no female mind. The brain is not an organ of sex. As well speak of a female liver” (Charlotte Perkins Gilman).
