Every now and then, we hear from a female startup-founder who says she’s having a hard time raising money. She can’t quite figure out if it’s her idea or her slide deck or — and no one wants to think this — if it’s simply the fact that she’s a woman pitching an idea to a roomful of male investors.

Women 2.0 CEO and co-founder Shaherose Charania came into VentureBeat’s studio to chat about a few issues experienced by a lot of female founders, not the least of which is experiencing subtle sexism during fundraising.

Charania also names a few names — VCs who enjoy working with women and make a point of including female-founded companies in their investment portfolios.

VentureBeat's mission is to be a digital town square for technical decision-makers to gain knowledge about transformative enterprise technology and transact. Learn more about membership.
