FounderLY collects video interviews with entrepreneurs as part of a media project to document their stories. These interviews cover a wide range of topics and have been conducted with an amazing range of entrepreneurs at various stages of experience and success.

More videos about female founders will hopefully be another step to help "change the ratio" of tech entrepreneurship and help women recognize that there are, in fact, many female entrepreneurs out there.

The videos will be available on the In Conversation channel on the Women 2.0 website as well as on FounderLY's site.
