O'Brien: How deal with two women points to a different Silicon Valley
Article profiles a $7.3 million deal between a startup and a prominent venture firm. Both the entrepreneur and the venture capitalist are women.
From the article:
Something happened last week in Silicon Valley that was remarkable simply because nothing about it was remarkable. Well, almost nothing.
On Monday, a stealth startup announced it had raised $7.3 million from a prominent venture firm. The deal hinged on the long-term relationship between the founder, a serial entrepreneur, and a venture capitalist who has become a leading figure in e-commerce startups. They had worked together in the past and had become cornerstones of each other's networks over the past decade.
In other words, it's the kind of thing that happens every day in Silicon Valley -- except for one crucial detail: They're both women.
