    Dear Marissa: Think Different. (Pink Is The New Purple)

    By narrowing its focus to women, Yahoo can beat the pants off its competitors.

    By Dave McClure (Founder & Partner, 500 Startups)

    I’d like to write a different open letter to Marissa Mayer that plays to both her strengths, as well as those of Yahoo. It’s a bit off the wall, but if you think it thru with me, I bet you’ll agree with the strategy.

    Yahoo has struggled for the last 6-7 years – with what it stands for, who’s running the show, how to keep its employees, how to compete with Google, and how to take advantage of its amazing assets in content, communications, and community around the world. The last really bold move Yahoo made was probably acquiring Flickr (aside from turning down the Microsoft acquisition

    A Labor Of Love & Passion (Entrepreneurship And Women 2.0)

    By Sonya Lee (User Experience Design Consultant, Mowie Media)

    Being amongst hundreds of women at Women 2.0 PITCH Conference has been the most exciting opportunity for me in 2012. Not only has it been an honor to attend, it has also been a personal opportunity to instill a sense of pride and validation in my work as a UX designer and solo entrepreneur.

    For the past two years, I have worked diligently in my home-office developing a concept and business strategy for Wine and Food Travel, an online community and marketplace for artisanal and boutique businesses around the world.

    Female Founders To Watch: Chief Product Officers

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

    Do you remember when serial tech entrepreneur Caterina Fake graced the cover of Newsweek magazine for founding Flickr?

    Women are often identified as consumers of market goods, but seldom recognized for their ability to create products – from consumer goods like Giddy Snacks in Whole Foods stores to venture-funded tech startups like Songkick.

    Women-Founded Businesses That Make Technology Simple

    By Cheryl Isaac (Contributor, Forbes)

    Some have addressed the “lack of women in tech startups,” or mentioned that women should stop blaming men for the lack of women startups.

    Recently, I read a post from three-time-start-upper Penelope Trunk, founder of Brazeen Careerist, about why she stepped down from her startup. Interestingly enough, Penelope also thinks that women don’t want to do startups because they are under pressure to have children.

    Tech is Really a Man’s Man’s Man’s World

    By Linda Forrest (Associate, Francis Moran & Associates)

     

    Reading a recent post about the role formal education plays in entrepreneurship, I was reminded of an article I read a few months ago about the “real reason women quit engineering.”

    In Stemming The Tide: Why Women Leave Engineering, two University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee professors report on their survey of over 3,700 women with engineering degrees. They found that just one in four women who had left the field reported doing so to spend more time with family.
