Majority Women-Owned AboutOne Announces $1.6 Million in Series A Funding http://t.co/J6DiSguR #womenentrepreneurs #startups #women...

AboutOne CEO, Joanne Lang, was listed by Forbes as one of Ten Female Entreprenuers And Mompreneurs To Watch in March 2011. Women building strong businesses and acquiring funding is no easy task as most funding goes to men. I tend to believe its not a biased perspective, its about women accepting the challenges of applying for funding. The new service from AboutOne, AcornPoints, will add to family content organization and includes photo storage.

 

Congratulations to AboutOne!

Women 2.0 – Founding Startups » Solo Founder Takes the Long Way with Accompl.sh

Women 2.0 – Founding Startups » Solo Founder Takes the Long Way with Accompl.sh | WomenEntrepreneurs | Scoop.it
Women startups in any industry may not be easy to get off the ground if working the solo entrepreneur angle. Jenn Vargas shares her experience taking a project to full website and calling it a startup. A few lessons I know all too well myself, such as build something for people to use, but they may not use it that way you expected. Jenn has a cool product we ALL could use for productivity and reaching our goals. -- @Nakeva

"I’m about 18 months into the journey of taking Accompl.sh (formerly 101in365) from a little weekend project to automate my own annual goal tracking to a living, breathing web application.

Taking the “long way” of being a solo founder, I found working on Accompl.sh as a side project has been a crash course in time management, community building, product development, design, coding, you name it. But the most difficult part of all has been making the big decisions about the direction of the project itself..." - Jenn Vargas
