Examine my labels. Teen computer game designer. Microsoft. Xbox. Google. Startup CEO. Tech investor. In a blink of an eye, it’s easy to conclude accurately that I am a “tech geek.” In playing the popular identity politics game, Jonathan Sposato is a standard issue Seattle “tech bro.” The go to narrative built by scandalous headline after headline this fall, is that I’m part of the tech bro fraternity who ”gets chicks” by funding their companies. You know, the socially inept guy who secretly fist bumps fellow misfit survivors, sport $300 Egyptian cotton hoodies, drive Teslas and thinks of women as a commodity or an adornment.
Let’s fund and green-light more female founded companies and create the next generation of great tech titans. A generation of tech titans that create even better products, better culture, and a better future.
