Top female VCs talk about the future of venture capital at Vator’s Amplify Conference: Katherine Barr, Rebecca Lynn, Sharon Wienbar, and Maha Ibrahim and share insights
Venture capital is changing as we know it. Even if you're new to the business, you've likely realized that the 40-year-old, once-cottage industry is becoming far more accessible and transparent. This is thanks to notable rising stars like Facebook and Google that have made multi-billionaires out of their young founders and investors.
So what are some of the changes in the last decade? How have traditional firms reacted? In light of the groundswell of newly-seeded startups, what are these firms' seed, deal-flow strategy and has Series A investing gotten tougher?
These are the questions asked on this panel at Amplify, hosted by Vator, Girls in Tech and Thomson Reuters. On the panel were top female VCs from Rebecca Lynn, partner at Morgenthaler, Sharon Wienbar, partner at Scale Venture Partners, Maha Ibrahim, partner at Canaan Partners and Katherine Barr, partner at Mohr Davidow Ventures.
