You know that things go in the right direction when fancy magazines turn to you. Vanity Fair published an interview with Sheila Lirio Marcelo, the founder and C.E.O. of Care.com. What stroke us even more was a glossy picture of women investors and entrepreneurs named "The Rise of Women in Silicon Valley". This is how it should be!
Sheila Lirio Marcelo pretty much summarized why the economy needs more women in venture capital and private equity:
I was in a room full of investors during a road show when one of the men questioned whether the Web-site would attract repeated users. “Why would I need to use your service again once I’ve already found a babysitter?” he asked. Before I could answer, the one woman investor in the room piped in. “I’ve used the service six times in the last eight months. Can we please move on?”
