So far at More Seats, we’ve talked about the process of changing the ratio with Emily Gannett and what changing the ratio from within the political class looks like with Mindy Finn. We’ve also talked about bridging the gap between paraprofessional and partner tracks with Karen Vander Linde and breaking through the thick layer of men at the top with Cindy Gallop. More recently, we learned from Nisha Chittal why “ambition is not a dirty word” for the next generation of women and what the impact of a strong Russian grandmother can have on one of today’s largest technology brands from Ekaterina Walter. Another key piece of advice to gaining more seats resides in taking risks and “not being afraid of beta” as Cory Haik implored us yesterday.
Today, we take the issue of female-founded start-ups head on with Nestio’s CEO and Co-Founder, Caren Maio. On the heels of the much tweeted about and commented on article by Mark Suster (“Why Aren’t There More Female Entrepreneurs?”), Caren’s background and approach provide a window on the solution to the imbalance.
