An exposé of the gender gap in entrepreneurship and a road map for a more inclusive and economically successful future for us all.

Journalist and Professor Susanne Althoff investigates the obstacles women and nonbinary entrepreneurs – especially those of color – face when launching, funding, and growing their companies, obstacles that persist because the current start-up world was engineered by and for White men. Through interviews with more than a hundred founders across the country and in all industries, Althoff paints a picture of an entrepreneurial system rife with bias and discrimination, where women receive less than three percent of this country’s venture capital, struggle to find mentors in the wake of #MeToo, and are dismissed as "mompreneurs".

The effects of this unequal system – a weaker economy, fewer jobs, less innovation – are felt by all of us, and Althoff explains how more equitable structures in business and entrepreneurship will benefit all people, not just those hoping to fund a start-up.

By exploring some of the practical ways we can open the entrepreneurial system to everyone, Althoff provides a rallying cry and a way forward for women entrepreneurs and their allies, showing that change is urgent and within our reach.
