This is a fairly hard hitting talk from TEDWomen this year about the lack of women Technology Entrepreneurs and the myths around them – and it’s a talk given by a man too..
Vivek Wadhwa dispels much of the myths about Entrepreneurs – and especially their age. The average age is 39 – not 22. They are not from privileged backgrounds, They are not exclusively white males from Stanford. There are women in the mix - married women – with great degrees and families. They have experience – and skills.
And yet – there are hardly any women in the mix in Silicon Valley. Vivek asks why – and shares some of the abuse he received whilst doing his research.
Its an interesting topic – he doesn’t mince his words at all. It’s well worth a listen
