With so many groups helping women to achieve in their tech careers, why is it that women leading technology startups often feel like something is missing? It’s a question I know I’ve been trying to solve ever since founding my own tech company and experiencing the feeling of being “lonely at the top.”
I began my startup journey in 2011 with our location-based augmented reality company, now known as QuestUpon. We bootstrapped, did a few pivots along the way, hired staff, joined accelerators, worked with advisors, wrote grants, won awards, etcetera.
