    The Women Of Y Combinator – And They Are Awesome

    This article has been syndicated from TechCrunch.

    By Kim-Mai Cutler (Writer, TechCrunch)

    I would normally rather have a root canal instead of write about the issue of women in technology. I just find most essays on this really tedious and obvious. (Sorry Alexia.)

    But I do want to point one thing out. When I went to my first Y Combinator Demo Day three years ago, there was one woman. At this week’s Demo Day, there were six companies with one or all female founders among the 66 startups in the class.

    I’m going to keep this post simple. No complaining.
