This week Bloomberg reported this week that stilettoed women entrepreneurs invade startups as niche shopping sites, circling back to Kleiner Perkins partner Aileen Lee’s “why women rule the Internet” argument that women consume and thus can and should build and profit off what they consume. What was most interesting in the article was buried down the page — a quote from Women 2.0’s Shaherose Charania on the sharply increasing demand from women to learn how to build high-growth startups. Today is your last chance to apply to join an early-stage startup incubated by Founder Labs to build the next big mobile startup. No more with flirting games and sexism. Instead, aim to create real value and jobs for economic recovery.
Let’s change the face of startup entrepreneurs and executives now. We know that women make better cops, doctors and world leaders. We know that having women on your team makes it smarter. Think beyond today’s bubble and practice real girl power.
