The top women innovators of all time

In honor of International Women’s day here’s a list of my favorite female innovators of all time.

Historical note: what’s most disturbing in the history of all innovation is how unfair history has been to women. Is hard to identify a singular cause but there’s evidence the shift to monotheism changed what had been a more balanced view of power, when there was still respect for male and female powers, into masculine centric cultures (See The Alphabet vs. The Goddess). Even by the time of the Western Enlightenment, women were still given few opportunities to study, work in pioneering fields or to receive acclaim for their work. It’d be wrong to blame monotheism alone, but its negative influence on opportunities for women is clear.

I believe that groups coming together to make tough decisions driven by consensus tend to make poor decisions.

This is especially true in startups where speed matters and where there is a need to constantly calibrate direction and where these decisions can have existential outcomes.

10 Things I Wish I Knew When I Was 21

As the years pass we usually think back and cringe at the mistakes we made when we were younger. Though we can’t go back in time, it is possible for others to learn from our mistakes and for us to recognize them and prevent them from happening again.

1. Stop Waiting for Things to Come to You. Go Get Them!

Becoming complacent and thinking success will be thrust upon you is pretty easy to do. The harsh reality is that if you don’t care enough to get your name out there, others will care even less. Stop waiting and start making things happen.
