Things may be improving for women entrepreneurs. According to Crunchbase's second Women In Venture Report, eight of the top 100 venture firms added female partners for the first time over the past 18 months. More female leaders in VC means that there is a larger pipeline for other women who want to get into the industry. Despite the improvement, women still receive less than 10% of the VC and seed funding in the U.S. Nisa Amoils, Venture Capitalist at Scout Ventures, and Lisa Druxman, Founder of FIT4MOM, discuss the current state of women in the modern workforce. Amoils says she is optimistic that 2018 is the year that women pass the 10% mark. Druxman also weighs in on the additional challenges that motherhood adds to entrepreneurship. She says there has been no better time than now to be a mom in business.
