Smart Girls

Last week, I reported on a paper showing that women entrepreneurs start fewer companies than men, and their startups tend to be weaker financially.

That's the bad news. The good news is that there are a bunch of smart, determined women working to change that state of affairs.

One of them is called Smart Girls Way, a Seattle organization that describes its mission as: "A social venture dedicated to empowering women entrepreneurs to create significant economic breakthroughs."

The aforementioned paper lamented the lack of female entrepreneurial role models for young women. Smart Girls is trying to change that with something called the 100 x 100 Project:
Each weekday for the next 20 weeks, the 100 x 100 Project will feature a different video interview with a woman entrepreneur who shares her experiences and advice firsthand. 
Sounds like a great first step to me. Check out some of the stories and see if you can find some inspiration!
