I had the pleasure of spending a few hours last night at the Boston Technovation event at MIT.

It was a lot of fun, and a really impressive, nationwide effort. Their mission from their website is as follows:

“The mission of the Technovation Challenge is to promote women in technology by giving girls the skills and confidence they need to be successful in computer science and entrepreneurship. We aim to inspire girls to see themselves not just as users of technology, but as inventors, designers, builders and entrepreneurs”

As the father of two girls, I was just so proud (yes, strange word I guess) to see the dedicated work and enthusiasm of these young women on their projects. It’s a reminder of why I do what I do. I genuinely believe that the problems of this world are going to be solved through entrepreneurial minds leveraging technology towards ambitious goals. And I love programs that kindle the interest of youth in this direction (especially for groups under-represented in technology).

We have one portfolio that is led by a female founder, with hopefully many more in the not too distant future.
