I want to share one image that I showed during my talk at SXSW about “Ending Bro Culture in Startup Land.” It’s a simple graphic. I made a list of the top 16 tech unicorns in the United States, and grabbed a photo of each company’s CEO, then put them on a slide. VCs swear they’re not “pattern matching” when they make investments, that they’re open to diversity, that Silicon Valley is a meritocracy. I think it’s a case of, Everyone’s equal, but some people are more equal than others. And they all happen to be dudes. Purely coincidence, I’m sure.
