Silicon Valley’s gender gap handicap
(Tom Foremski meets Genieo’s CEO Sol Tzvi)
“Silicon Valley is running hard to maintain its position as the global innovation engine, against competition with dozens of fast growing innovation centers around the world.
Which is why it’s puzzling that Silicon Valley has such a large gender gap in key sectors such as angels, VCs, entrepreneurs, engineers, and in senior executive roles.
Why isn’t Silicon Valley using all of its people?
Successful startups are businesses that quickly figure out how to make products and services far more productive, for far less money, they spot arbitrage opportunities in huge industries and markets, they make use of the best resources available to them — tools, capital, business know-how, skilled staff. So why so few women?”
