Women Pitching the Same Exact Ideas As Men Still Get Less Funding From Venture Capitalists

Pitching your startup to venture capitalists is never easy, but it’s even harder if you’re a woman. That’s the result of a recent study published by researchers from Harvard, MIT and the Wharton School. Even if the businesses are identical, investors are more likely to throw money at a man than a woman. 

The study had two key parts. The first looked at U.S. entrepreneurial pitch competitions over the course of three years and found that “male entrepreneurs were 60% more likely to achieve pitch competition success than were female entrepreneurs.” The second part isolated gender—to ensure that it wasn’t simply that men had better ideas or better pitches.

In this second part of the study, the researchers showed images of the ventures in question, but not the entrepreneur themselves. Instead, investors simply heard the person’s voice over the slides they were viewing. This allowed the researchers to swap out a male voice and a female voice on the same exact presentation. When investors were asked to chose a project, 68 percent of them chose to fund ventures voiced by men. Only 31 percent chose those voiced by women.

A third part of the study also found that the pro-male bias is even stronger if that man is attractive. The researchers conclude:

Investors prefer pitches presented by male entrepreneurs compared with pitches made by female entrepreneurs, even when the content of the pitch is the same. This effect is moderated by male physical attractiveness: attractive males were particularly persuasive, whereas physical attractiveness did not matter among female entrepreneurs.

It’s clear, from this work, that men have a quantifiable advantage over women when pitching their businesses—something many have suspected for a long time, but haven’t necessarily been able to prove. So the idea that women who work just as hard as men, who perform as well, and who produce equivalent work, will be treated as equals and be just as successful as their male counterparts seems to be wishful thinking.

Turns out that /r/mensrights survey I posted yesterday was rigged, and the person who set it up has withdrawn the whole thing. So … now you know.

Reblogging this because facts are important.

However, there was another survey apparently done about 9 months ago…

Above all, don’t lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.

Unwind me slowly
and untwist my twisted parts,
untie all these knots.

How can you resist?

Why resist? You can, but you know it’s much easier to simply fall deeper, whether you allow that to happen now, or in a few moments from now… whether your eyes lock on the crystal, watching it swing back and forth, or whether your eyes become totally fixated on her breasts, drawing each and every thought from your empty mind… as those eyes begin to grow tired, now or as you continue to stare, allowing your mind to simply slip away more and more, feeling fuzzy, relaxed… and maybe a little aroused, now. Yes, it is just so arousing, this feeling of helplessness; just watch, sweetie. You’re mine now.

Mmm, so fuzzy. …So aroused
