“Women belong in all places where decisions are being made. It shouldn’t be that women are the exception.” - RBG

Glasswing honors the heroic life of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a fierce advocate/champion for the advancement of gender equality and women’s rights. Tiny in stature, RGB was willing to stand up and fight for what she believed in, and she did so until her dying day. RGB said she would like to be remembered as, “Someone who used whatever talent she had to do her work to the very best of her ability. And to help repair tears in her society…


By Jake Haase, Williams College Intern, 2020

As a rising Junior at Williams College, the venture capital world was largely unfamiliar to me. I understood the rationale behind the prevalence of technology, but I had yet to completely grasp how an idea develops into a successful business.

My summer internship at Glasswing Ventures showcased this process and provided me with the opportunity to see the steps young companies go through as they develop in their respective sectors. Looking at businesses at a high level allowed me to see how a VC firm like Glasswing, can bolster a company with expertise…

I remember when I stumbled upon the term “Machine Learning” (ML) as a Freshman in college, I was researching which graphics card to buy for my gaming computer. After spending the whole night reading about what it was, I realized that ML is the future, and I told myself I had to learn what it was all about. The next morning, I barged into the advisors’ office in the Khoury College of Computer Sciences at Northeastern and begged to switch into the Computer Science program. After grinding through the CS fundamental classes…

Babson College

As you might expect from an incoming undergraduate senior at Babson College, I’ve learned a lot about the complex and varied aspects of the business world. Going into Babson with the knowledge that you’re already set up on a path for your future career in business is reassuring for some; but for others, it can be incredibly stressful. This lays out the understanding that you are deciding to go directly for a business degree, many make this decision as high school students, without the experience of ever sitting in a business-focused…

Northeastern University

As a master’s student in Data Science at Northeastern University, I have been drawn to machine learning and the various ways that it can be implemented. Watching the progress of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning transform our way of life for the better is remarkable to see and once I discovered this side of technology during my last year at UMass Amherst, it clicked that this is the area I wanted to follow.

After completing my second undergraduate internship at an insurance company, learning about actuarial science, I discovered that “this field…


The horrific events in the past few weeks have called the Nation — and the entire world — to wake up to police brutality and the marginalization of Black lives. We have had to face the uncomfortable truth that racism and inequality in America is systemic. Now is the time to listen, educate ourselves, raise our voices, raise awareness about exclusion and to take action.

From the inception of our firm in 2016, and as part of our mission, we have made a commitment to supporting women and minorities. We have made it a priority to hold metrics on diverse…


These are difficult times for everyone, trying to understand how to work with many, if not all, employees working remotely from home. Entire families are distanced from each other, while others are sharing more togetherness time than they have had in years. Beyond the disruption of adjusting to this way of working, there is the need to pay extra attention to cybersecurity.

Cybercriminals are taking advantage of overworked IT and security teams, lax security protocols on personal devices being used to work from home, and fear. They are exploiting the coronavirus situation to attack vulnerable organizations and individuals at a…
