Tech startups founded by women have twice the number of female employees: Study

Startups with at least one female founder build companies where nearly half the staff are women, a study found.

With an average of 48 per cent female workers, women-led firms have nearly twice the industry average and outpace some of the nation’s largest tech companies in gender diversity including Google (31 per cent), Facebook (33 per cent) and Uber (36 per cent), according to the study by online startup investing platform FundersClub that surveyed 85 U.S.-based tech startups.

Alex Mittal, co-founder and chief executive of FundersClub, said startups are key to addressing gender diversity in the workplace because the ones that succeed may someday be big companies.
