Women are not well represented in technical or founder roles in new startups. If you work in the startup world, this is no news to you. In recent years, the trend is changing for the better. In the period from 2009 to 2014, CrunchBase records 14,341 U.S.-based startups that received funding. Of those, 15.5%, or 2,226, have at least one female founder. While women are rocking the business world at large, only 3% of technology startups in Silicon Valley are started by women. Women may be underrepresented throughout the tech sector, but they’re building some incredible startups.
