Our team has an ongoing internal huddle throughout the year: a team meeting where we share the most disruptive and exciting startups and emerging technologies from around the world. The only rule is that they can’t solve a current client challenge directly. This way, we retain our superpower of spotting creative adjacencies and disruptive outer-horizon solutions.
While we are always looking for diverse gender representation in the Ventures we're watching and the startups we source for our clients, this March, in celebration of Women's History Month, we focused on sharing the most disruptive and exciting startups and emerging tech companies led by female founders.
Below is a short list of those startups.
