Real Talk w/Terry

Excerpt from Entrepreneur.com

Women make up one half of the earth’s population. And yet, if you survey the landscape of founders of the most notable tech companies in recent years — Mark Zuckerberg, Brian Chesky, Jack Dorsey, Travis Kalanick — they are all white males. These leaders of Facebook, Twitter, Airbnb and Snapchat give the appearance that founding massively valuable companies is primarily the sport of men. Is it just a coincidence that none of them are women? Are we to believe that women simply don’t create great things? Or, should we instead address the reality that we live in an unbalanced world where the path for female entrepreneurs is much much harder?”
