I just landed after three days in the woods with 100 incredible women at the Chairman Mom Flee. The highlight? Ten CEOs and investors crowded around my little Chromebook on a rustic picnic table tearing my new investor pitch to shreds.
It felt amazing. They truly cared. Every suggestion was a little buttress of support. In a world where only 6% of VC money goes to women founders, we are in this battle together.
I realized how starved I was for intergenerational female friendships. Hanging with female VCs and founders with a decade or more experience than me pulled out the best in me.
Today, be there for your fellow female colleagues. Help push them up because, ladies, we're in this together.
