Description


Journalist and professor Susanne Althoff investigates the obstacles women and nonbinary entrepreneurs--especially those of color--face when launching, funding, and growing their companies, obstacles that persist in a start-up world engineered by and for white men. Through interviews with over a hundred founders across the country and in all industries, Althoff paints a picture of an entrepreneurial system rife with bias and discrimination, where women receive less than 3 percent of this country's venture capital, struggle to find mentors in the wake of #MeToo, and are dismissed as "mompreneurs." But more equitable business and entrepreneurship structures will benefit all people, she demonstrates, not just those hoping to fund a startup. By exploring some of the practical ways we can open the entrepreneurial system to everyone, Launching While Female provides a rallying cry and a way forward for women entrepreneurs and their allies, showing that change is urgent and within our reach.
