    Where Are the Women in Venture Capital That Blog?

    As gatekeepers of venture capital, where are the women in venture capital who blog?

    By Angie Chang (Co-Founder & Editor-in-Chief, Women 2.0)

    Thought leadership in technology, entrepreneurship and business is established by blogging and tweeting. Unfortunately, the blog rolls of venture capitalists are filled with mostly, well, men ranging from the partners at Andreesseen Horowitz, Y Combinator, and the pundits at TechCrunch… but where are the women?

    Crowdsourced Children’s Apparel Startup One Jackson, Founded By CEO Anne Raimondi, Acquired By TaskRabbit

    Children’s clothing startup to shut down as team joins TaskRabbit.

    By Angie Chang (Co-Founder & Editor-in-Chief, Women 2.0)

    Former SurveyMonkey VP of Marketing Anne Raimondi launched One Jackson earlier this year to disrupt the $1.5 billion kids clothing market by enabling independent designers to produce lines of clothes through design challenges and consumer voting contests.

    The early-stage children’s clothing startup had raised a $2 million in seed capital. These investors include four high-profile women investors who also happen to be moms – Aileen Lee (Kleiner Perkins

    Can Mothers Found Startups? (Hint: Yes)

    “People expect mothers to be less committed and therefore give them less responsibility and pay them less from the start.”

    By Joan C. Williams & Rachel Dempsey (Authors, The New Girls’ Network)

    An article in this weekend’s New York Times shed some more light on Silicon Valley’s worst-kept secret: it has a woman problem. Its look at female founders of tech start-ups who also have children shows a remarkable lack of self-consciousness about Maternal Wall bias, the strongest and most open form of gender bias today.

    According to the article, women make up 10% of founders at high-growth tech companies, and raise 70% less capital than men do. There are a lot of reasons for this; we discussed sexual harassment in our last post, and we’ll take on the meritocracy myth

    Nurturing A Baby And A Startup Business

    Looking ahead, investors may find themselves at a disadvantage if they don’t invest in companies run by women, including those with children. That’s because “women are going to be a huge force in developing Web and mobile companies,” says Ms. Lee at Kleiner Perkins.

    By Hannah Seligson (Contributor, New York Times)

    Fledgling companies are like sticky-fingered toddlers. You’ve got to watch them every single minute.

    And yet a small group of women is proving that it’s possible to start a high-growth technology company and have children at the same time. They are dispelling the image of the tech entrepreneur as a single, usually male, wunderkind. Consider Jennifer Fleiss, 28, co-founder of Rent the Runway, an online dress and accessories rental site with 2.5 million members. She gave birth to a daughter, Daniella, in December.

    True&Co Takes $2M Seed Funding From First Round, SoftTech, Others To Shake Up The Bra Industry

    True&Co co-founders Aarthi Ramamurthy and Michelle secure funding from investors for bra shopping.

    By Ingrid Lunden (Writer, TechCrunch)

    The women’s liberation movement once taught ladies to cast off their bras in solidarity and empowerment; now a new startup, founded by two women, is inverting that formula to make sure that when you put it back on, that bra fits like a glove.

    True&Co is launching an online bra fitting service and shop that takes a very traditional (and tedious) process — finding bras you like that actually fit well — and makes it quick and kind of fun, and it is doing it with $2 million in seed funding from a great list of investors: First Round Capital, SoftTech VC, Aileen Lee, Softbank Capital
