Every so often I get sent a cool infographic like this one that features information on women who start tech companies. The stats that leap out at me are the ones in the section called “Challenges and Support”.

If you desire to be a better mentor, or know of someone who wishes to be mentored, take a look. You’re sure to find some good information on the topic.
