WIN Wednesdays

Last week at Demo Day SF, we announced the WIN (Women Investors Now) Challenge.In an effort to increase the number of women angel investors, we challenged women to invest in 3 startups at a minimum of $5,000 each over the next year. Since then, more than 100 have taken the challenge and WIN has sparked a ton of exciting conversationaround the topic of women angels and women investors.

To keep up the momentum, we’re introducing our new Wednesday blog series, WIN Wednesdays. Beginning next Wednesday, we’ll highlight a notable female leader in tech each week. Whether she’s an angel investor, a founder, an engineer, or a warrior princess that fights crime with a Macbook Air, the featured WIN Wednesday woman will always be someone that we think is an inspiration and awesome role model for women (and men) everywhere!
