How do women, through grit and ingenuity, become stars in the cutthroat, high-stakes, male-dominated world of venture capital in Silicon Valley to help build some of the foremost companies of our time?
Alpha Girls: The Women Upstarts Who Took on Silicon Valley's Male Culture and Made the Deals of a Lifetime takes readers behind closed doors to follow the lives and careers of women who were largely written out of history - until now. Through their experiences juggling work and family, the featured leaders and others continue to shape the tech landscape we know today while overcoming unequal pay, literal punches, betrayals, and the sexist attitudes prevalent in Silicon Valley and male-dominated industries. Despite setbacks, they have rewritten the rules for an industry they love, paving the way for the next generation of women along the way.
Join us as author and award-winning journalist Julian Guthrie talks with the ultimate power duo, a male/female team who challenge stereotypes as they guide fast-growing Silicon Valley companies to success. Together, venture partner Sonja Hoel Perkins and seasoned executive Abe Kleinfield build strong companies that earn high revenues, garner multi-million dollar exits, and receive awards for innovation, customer service, and employee satisfaction.
