Whither the Female Tech Founder

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Sunday 13th March, 2011

3:30pm to 4:30pm (CST)

Is the boys club of Internet founders by coincidence or design? This panel will discuss the *real* reasons why there are so few female founders of scalable Internet start-ups. We'll also talk about what can be done to skyrocket this number. No PC talk permitted.
