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

    The sound bytes that were tweeted from February’s PITCH 2012 conference were golden.

    “Know what you have to prove,” said ZipCar co-founder Robin Chase on building a minimum viable product. Just the minimum and then iterate fast. Katie Mitic at Facebook agreed, recommending entrepreneurs to “let go of the idea of a perfect product.”

    Care.com CEO Sheila Lirio Marcelo delivered a strong message for women to let go of “that image of perfection” because this will give you more confidence and help take risks.

    5 Lessons Learned From A Day With 1000 Women Entrepreneurs

    By Thomas Korte (Founder & Managing Partner, AngelPad)

    I was invited this week to judge the Women 2.0 PITCH Competition. I blocked out the day with one goal: give a lot of feedback and advice to entrepreneurs. And I am glad I did.

    The conference was unlike any I have attended in recent years. 1000 women-tech entrepreneurs, many of them not from Silicon Valley, skipped Valentine’s Day to listen to the learnings, inspirational and success stories of fellow women entrepreneurs. 99% of the audience were women and Dave McClure, Naval Ravikant, Jeff Clavier and myself were the only men on stage.

    By Emily Gonzales (CTO, Bookigee)

    As I sat in the Women 2.0 PITCH Conference yesterday surrounded by close to a thousand female tech entrepreneurs, engineers, designers, investors and supporters, I couldn’t help but feel like we were making history.

    As a tech entrepreneur flying in from Miami to learn as much as possible from the speakers and mentors, they exceeded every expectation I had for inspiration and practical advice. In short, I was blown away.

    Never Been a Better Time for Women Entrepreneurs

    By Wendy Tan White (Founder & CEO, Moonfruit)

    It’s been a great 12 months for our business, taking a $2.25M Series A round from Stephens(US) for international growth, backing from Silicon Valley-based 500 Startups, relaunching Moonfruit to focus on SMB’s who expect better DIY design tools to build better designed websites, record revenues and the Everywoman Entrepreneur of the Year award. There has never been a better time to be a women entrepreneur, get out there and set up your own business!

    Women-led firms are the fastest growing sector of new venture creation in the US. The trend is international, in Brazil there are more female than male entrepreneurs and China has created half of the female billionaire entrepreneurs globally a direct result of women’s economic empowerment. I believe there is also growth opportunity for women in the UK. As business owners, women in the UK still have a lot of ground to make up on our American cousins.

    Recent statistics have shown that if the UK had the same level of female entrepreneurship as the US, there would be approximately 600,000 extra women-owned businesses, contributing an estimated additional £42 billion to the economy. To put it into perspective, with businesses started by men in the UK too, an extra 150,000 start-ups would be created per year if women were to meet their number of businesses started.
