    Women 2.0 regularly profiles women (from angel investors to venture capitalists) who invest in women.

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

This is unfortunate and needs to change, as women investors are more likely to be directly connected to and able to attract female-led ventures.

    A solution to the low rate of women entrepreneurs receiving investment to go big with their ventures would be to increase the pipeline of women angel investors and venture capitalists. This week, we talk to the owner of Sterling Place, angel investor Elizabeth Crowell.

    Alice Brooks, one of the co-founders of Kickstarter project Roominate, grew up visiting her father’s robotics lab and when she was young, she had her own saw so that they could work side-by-side.
