Podcast Part I: Bursting the Bubble of Female Entrepreneurship?

We very much enjoyed this 11-minute podcast by Ashley Milne-Tyte and will be bringing you Part II soon!

Being a journalist and British, I walk around with a double level of cynicism. So when recently I started reading a bunch of posts, articles and tweets all raving about female entrepreneurship ('you go girl' was the general flavor), I got suspicious. I wanted to get behind the hype and find out what's really going on in the world of women entrepreneurs.

In the next installment of this two-part series,  I'll have an interview with Amanda Pouchout, co-founder of The Levo League, a startup devoted to ambitious 20-something women. Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg is one of their funders.

Look out for Part II, coming soon!
