There’s a lot of hand wringing about the accessibility of entrepreneurship and Silicon Valley to women and minorities. There are a lot of issues on the business side of gender and minority fairness (having started my life in the more or less meritocracy as a technologist and engineer, I’m often surprised at home much), but, despite that, entrepreneurs who are determined to make it happen– either men and women–just keep on executing despite any issues.
Anyway, for whatever reason, there’s been a string of women entrepreneurs recently over on our Texas site — four interviews with women entrepreneurs in a row, which is pretty much unprecedented for any of our sites–so I thought I’d point it out. (Our interview with Tara Weingarten of VroomGirls ran both on socalTECH and our Texas site, plus we have interviews with Carrie Layne of BestBuzz, Patti Rogers of Rallyhood, and Sara Gates of Wisegate on the Texas site). I don’t know if that’s a random occurrence, or a surge of women entrepreneurs in Texas, but it is interesting.
