Where are all the women at in the startup world? If you read most articles about tech startup founders, youâ€™re probably under the impression that only men create mobile apps and launch successful tech companies. Women only make up 35% of startup owners, according to a Kauffman Foundation article published last year. And when it comes to tech startup business owners, an estimated 5% are female.
While the tech world is overwhelmingly male, you canâ€™t ignore the female innovators giving male startup owners a run for their money. BlackEnterprise.com tech columnist Hajj Flemings has compiled a list of women from all walks of life influencing the startup space.
