Inside The Connected World Of Female Tech Founders

17 Jun

Fortune.com has an article about how women tech founders are connected and know each other. It’s great that they highlight the women tech founders, but I would hate for readers to think that have replaced the “old boys’ club” with an “old new girls club”.  I especially like Alexa Hirchfeld’s quote about  what women tech founders need to know:

“These women are serious, sharp business people, but most are not powerhouse developers or designers,” says Hirschfeld, who also works as a user interface designer at Paperless Post. “But tech is now layered on top of all businesses. You need to learn the language enough to do your job, but not enough to do developers’ jobs.”
