How female entrepreneurs can succeed is the topic of this fabulous podcast with Dr. James Richardson.  We all know we cannot travel the entrepreneurship road solo if we want to succeed.  Dr. James explores whether it’s best for female entrepreneurs to seek out an all female team or whether there is value in having a male co-founder.

In this podcast we talk about:

  • What unique advantages do women tend to bring to entrepreneurial ventures?
  • What latent sexism do they often miss completely when working with stakeholders?
  • How can cisgender female socialization hold many women back as entrepreneurs?
  • How can it help them as entrepreneurs?
  • Should women create an all-female team initially? Why or Why not?
  • Is there value in a having male co-founder?
