“I think that while education and support for youth programs are extremely important, they don’t have to be the only project women work on. In fact, learning how to make money on a profitable business model, becoming a successful tech entrepreneur and then funding education and youth programs is another way to have a big impact on those areas and it empowers women to hold the purse strings.
Fun fact: Women entrepreneurs are 18% less likely to get funding from VCs, but according to research done by Emory University, are ~5% more likely to report a profit. Time to change that from 18% less likely, to 50% more likely – what do ya say?”
