TheDeal Magazine: Closing the VC Gender Gap by Mary Kathleen Flynn

Venture capital remains an old-boy network, with only 14% of VCs being women and women receiving less than 10% of venture funding. At the recent We Own It Summit, VCs, angel investors and researchers focused on strategies to boost female participation in the venture-backed ecosystem. In The Deal's video montage, we hear from Kristine Brandt, director of Invesco Private Capital, Astia CEO Sharon Vosmek, Kauffman Foundation vice president Lesa Mitchell and Silicon Valley Bank senior vice president Megan Scheffel. - Mary Kathleen Flynn
