Have a question about etiquette? Dear Abby has you covered. Need some advice on how to behave in the bedroom? Dr. Ruth should be able to enlighten you. But if you’re a startup founder with a specific question about fundraising, pitching or managing your business — where can you turn for advice?
Women 2.0 hope to provide some answers with the help of VC Renee DiResta, an associate at seed-stage investor O’Reilly AlphaTech Ventures who has kindly offered to field queries from our community. Now all we need are some questions.
So if you have a problem that you think Renee might be able to help you out with, please email us at email@example.com outlining the issue.
A little background on Renee: a former Wall Street derivatives trader, she was hired about two years ago at OATV following a public call for more female applicants (VCs are still looking for more women to apply, by the way). Here’s a recent interview she did with TechCrunch about her transition into venture capital and what she’s learned so far. You can also read her blog or follow her on Twitter @noUpside.
