Women in Tech: You're Either A Geek By Nature, Or NOT

Women in Tech: You're Either A Geek By Nature, Or NOT | WomenEntrepreneurs | Scoop.it
Like many other male dominated industries, the field of technology presents both challenges and opportunities for women today.

 

I know plenty of women in tech and another good group of women of color in tech. My background is in tech, yet it wasn't a tech idea I wanted to pursue to start a business. That may soon change with my idea incubation coming out of its dormant state. Its my belief that to be in tech as a woman you either already found your inner geek, or you need to move on to another profession. Don't cultivate a false sense of geek happiness. Great article to read for discussing purpose and ideas. -Nakeva

Inspiring Future Generations to Innovate | WomenEntrepreneurs | Scoop.it
So much for trade secrets. Limor Fried has based a business around the idea that everyone can do it themselves.

"For the most part, everyone finally agrees that open source software has been a success. It runs the net, it runs Google, it runs everything," Fried said. "Millions of companies and billions of dollars are made possible by open source software. Open source hardware is just starting to take off."

Stilettos Invade Startups as Niche-Shopping Sites Attract Women

Stilettos Invade Startups as Niche-Shopping Sites Attract Women | WomenEntrepreneurs | Scoop.it
Alexis Maybank, co-founder of the shopping website Gilt Groupe Inc., says her 5-inch stilettos are meant to send a message: being feminine and starting a technology company aren’t mutually exclusive.

“Women are driving most of the consumer activity on the Web today,” said Aileen Lee, a venture capitalist at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, who devotes about half of her investment portfolio to startups founded by females.

“I can’t relate to Mark Zuckerberg, and I can’t relate to Steve Jobs,” she said, referring to the co-founders and CEOs of Facebook Inc. and Apple Inc, respectively. “Having a community where people look like you -- seeing other role models implicitly tells someone they can do it.”
