If you are a female entrepreneur and have had interaction with venture capital firms, don’t be surprised if they contact you to discuss the nature of those interactions — and to assess their (men’s) behavior.

Interestingly, they found that those operating as a one person team had a better chance of surviving than those who formed larger teams — by a large margin! The lone operators not only stayed in business longer but also brought in larger average revenues.
Fortunately there are more options out there now than ever before for entrepreneurs seeking money for a new business. And at least one of them actually appears to favor women rather than putting them at a disadvantage!
