A #CryptoIntro — Resources & Wrap Up
Our mission at #ANGELS is to get more women on the cap tables of successful start-ups. Representation in the ownership structure of a company, not just the workforce, is vital to achieving equality because the cap table is where wealth and power is created in our industry. Our recent post on #TheGapTable outlines why this is so important.
We run an events and conversation series called #ANGELS Access to do our part to fix the #TheGapTable. Over 3+ years we’ve brought together hundreds of women in over a dozen events to share knowledge, diversify networks, and promote and support women working in frontier fields in our industry. We hosted our most recent event, #CryptoIntro, with Andreessen Horowitz last week in San Francisco. The a16z team has authored and curated a great set of resources on crypto, many listed here in their Crypto Cannon, making them an excellent partner for the event.
Thanks to the a16Z content and events team, we recorded the talks and are sharing them online. Here is Linda Xie, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Scalar Capital and former product manager at Coinbase, kicking things off with “An Intro to Crypto”:
