SOAR Helps Female Startups. We Are IN, What About YOU?

SOAR Helps Female Startups. We Are IN, What About YOU? | Startup Revolution | Scoop.it

SOAR is an important project. Glad we have a chapter in the Triangle ares of North Carolina (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill). We want to support SOAR anyway we can including putting our startup @CrowdFunde into the mix and writing some checks. This initiative is long overdue and we are all in.

Lori Wilk's curator insight, March 21, 2014 9:26 PM

I want to interview everyone about their efforts at SOAR. It's great to know that there's support for this project.

I think our CrowdFunde startup is going to set up a fund, ask for matching donations of time and money and do whatever we can to help SOAR @Lori Wilk since its long overdue. Marty

Business In Red Shoes – Women In Business Imperative [book review]

Business In Red Shoes – Women In Business Imperative [book review] | Startup Revolution | Scoop.it


Marty Note
It is imperative more women start businesses especially in technology. Women see things differently, bring fresh perspective and can be more collaborative and less proprietary. I know sweeping generalizations are dangerous, but go to any tech startup weekend and it may be as much as 80% male. In my 30 year business career I've noticed an important truth - diversity trumps all else.

Diverse teams perform better (read Wisdom of Crowds for why). Teams rich in diversity perspectives, background and gender perform consistently at a higher level. Hope this new book encourages more women entrepreneurs especially in tech.
