Changing Tides: Powerful Strategies for Female Founders by Jennifer S. LeBlanc

 

Women receive 2 percent of venture funding and make up 9 percent of VC partners, yet research shows that companies with female leaders and board members outperform all-male companies. Changing Tides brings together experienced female venture capitalists, entrepreneurs and thought leaders who share their expertise and tactical guidance through a collection of essays. This book is intended as a resource for anyone wanting to win—or support a woman to win—at the heavily stacked entrepreneur and funding game.

One reader says about the book, “Changing Tides is exactly what every female founder— and every investor—needs. It’s a rallying cry for all of us who support female founders. A peek into what the collective experience is, and what is needed to lift up and propel these founders and create better, more diverse offerings in this world.”
