The Future of Startups is… Women

I never say this, but I will today: I sure wish I invented a smart doorbell maker!

Oh and also AngelList says that First Round Capital says the future is women. From AngelList:

In the first two months of 2018, First Round Capital had 3 billion-dollar+ exits. It’s only March. As early investors in Uber, the venture capital firm was able to sell 40% of their shares to SoftBank back in January (netting approximately $800M). Last month, it was announced that pharmaceutical giant Roche is acquiring Flatiron Health for $1.9B, and less than two weeks after, Amazon acquired the smart doorbell maker Ring for $1.2B. First Round was an early investor in both.

First Search, First Round’s search engine for the best tactical startup advice, was also nominated for the Product of the Year Golden Kitty Award a few weeks back. It’s been a good start of the year for First Round.

The first thing you see when walking into First Round’s San Francisco office is a poster on the wall: The future is female founders.

Yet still less than 2.19% of all venture capital funding goes to female-led startups. In honor of International Women’s Day, here are 20 Female Founded Startups to Join in 2018 that are growing quickly and hiring. For more, we created an ever-growing list of over 1,300 startups founded by female founders. Check it out.
