Victress Capital, a fund founded by women to back women founders, just closed its second fund

Women start 40 percent of the businesses in the U.S., but they receive just 3% of venture funding. It doesn’t take a math whiz to recognize that such an extreme funding gap could spell opportunity, but it might help if you are math minded, a longtime investor, and happen to be woman and so conceivably understand certain products and pitches better than some men. That was certainly the thinking of both Lori Cashman and Suzanne Norris, who came together in 2016 to form Victress Capital outside of ...

Mark Zuckerberg urges people to wear a mask to help 'keep this country open' (FB)

The Unbearable Something of Q2 2020

I woke up thinking “this has been the strangest quarter of my life.” I used to think in days, weeks, months, quarters, years, and decades. I stopped doing that around the time I turned 50 because I was exhausted from the rhythm. I’ve been thinking about Q2 the last few days, which has been the Covid quarter. March was pre-quarter insanity as March 11th through the end of the month was completely disorienting and chaotic. I wrote the Three Crisis post on March 31st, which meant that I had g...
