  1. After reading the articles posted by Professor Hollis and Monica, I must say that I am not surprised by any of the findings with regard to both geographical and gender success of start ups.

    I found a recent article about a woman who has been successful in raising millions of dollars for two start-ups. Although she does not call herself a technologist, she does have over 25 years of experience in the technical field. The fact that she has successfully raised money for two companies speaks to the point in one of the articles about it being tougher for newcomers to get funded because VC’s are looking for people who have already been successful.

    I have attached the article in which she discusses some of her keys to success in the field.
