The Medium Writing Prompt Asks: How do we get more women-led startups funded?

Let the masses have the StartUps. The outliers (including Women) will bring us ChangeUps. Here are 3 examples:

Kate Milliken — My Counterpane

Grace Teo — Open Style Lab

McCauley Wanner — Alleles

I’d support a Change-Up over a Start-Up any day.

And yes, while saying Men = StartUp and Women = ChangeUp would be sexist and misguided by my own standards, I do think it is worth noting that not everything that starts up fits a ‘StartUp’ framework and culture. Let’s focus on the outliers, those who are trying to change perceptions and change the world. ChangeUps come from those who are making life more inclusive.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
