    To Be Or Not To Be A Woman Entrepreneur

    Moving into management takes a shift in thinking, and new ways of finding self-­actualization.

    By Gargi Nalawade (Founder & CEO, Sepalz)

    Successes such as Instagram has got the whole developer community up in restless excitement. At least two developers approached me the day the Instagram acquisition was announced. And they did their own announcements to me.

    “I would like to talk to you about becoming an entrepreneur”, one said. “I would like to know how exactly to become an entrepreneur and understand what it takes” said another.

    Looking at Instagram and the 12-person team that made hundreds of millions in a few months is giving them a blood rush.

    Married Couples Run Sugar, ModCloth and Other Tech Startups

    By Jon Swartz (Contributor, USA TODAY)

    When Brian Sugar ponders an executive decision at his high-tech startup here, all he has to do for quick advice is instant-message his business partner -— on the other end of the living-room couch.

    His wife, Lisa Sugar, agrees that their 5-year-old online women’s network, aptly named Sugar, should make a key personnel move. In between shop talk, they comment on the San Francisco Giants game they’re watching on TV, after tucking the kids into bed.

    Unconventional, yes, but this tech tandem has thrived.

    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.
