"Building gender-balanced startups" is our submission for next year's SXSW Interactive conference, now available for public voting on SXSW's Panel Picker here. Hosted by theMIX agency CEO Vanessa Camones, we're very proud to have three leading voices in tech as our panelists: Julie Ann Horvath (&yet), Colleen Taylor (TechCrunch), and Hunter Walk (Homebrew). We included Hunter in our recent post celebrating Five VCs Investing to Make Tech Better for Everyone, while Julie Ann and Colleen were featured in our May event, "Real Talk with Women in Tech", which was covered by ReadWrite and Silicon Valley Watcher. (Video from the event below.) And Vanessa just wrote a VentureBeat essay on how VCs can help solve tech's problem with women.


Hope you consider consider voting on our panel, and if you're going to SXSW next year, hope to see you there!
