    “(…) The poorest and most backward-going societies in the world, tend to be those who diminish their women and yet, this blatantly obvious truth is usually ignored, all the same, by governments and philanthropists… Women represent 51% of the human race, supporting them will change everything; even more so than technology, design or entertainment. Women who are educated, work and get opportunities will bring peace and prosperity to this desolated world (…)”- Isabel Allende

    When Women 2.0 partnered with Ellas 2.0, founded by Patricia Araque in Spain, we set out to identify emerging Latina entrepreneurs. The media is buzzing about Latina entrepreneurs, talking about how why Latinas are leaving corporate America.

Take for example the venerable Skimlinks Founder and CEO Alicia Navarro – her Twitter profile reveals a smorgasbord of identities: “Spanish-blooded, Aussie-born, London-headquartered, San Francisco-based…”

    Thermometer on Startup Investment in Spain in 2011

    By Patricia Araque (Founder & President, Ellas 2.0)

    The document prepared by Ready4Ventures notes that only 4 of the 66 investors interviewed for the report are women, and only 4 of the 109 entrepreneurs who participated in the surveys are entrepreneurs.

    These numbers make clear what we are trying to change in our work at Ellas 2.0 — the shortage of female talent in the industry.
