Good question. Here's how one Silicon Valley insider is trying to find the answer
Why this topic?
After coming to Silicon Valley from North Carolina a few years ago, my wife made me realize something strange. You don’t see women here at tech conferences. You don’t see women on the boards of tech companies. You don’t see women CTOs.When it comes to the workplace, women aren’t there. It’s like the Twilight Zone.
So I started researching the causes of the problem and speaking out about it. And the more I spoke, the more attacks I endured from the Silicon Valley elite. I said, Aha! This is the root of the problem.
In your experience, do men and women innovate differently?
Women are more sensible in the businesses they start. They are not going to ask for a gazillion dollars from a venture capitalist for some harebrained scheme to do yet another photo-sharing app. They focus on the practical. Which also means their companies are initially smaller than the guys’ companies. Which is OK. They have lower failure rates. I like those companies better.
