Podcast: StartUp Podcast: Another Side Of The Story (Season 2, #3)

Picking up where the last episode left off, at YC's Demo Day, the women of Dating Ring start trying to raise money.

The founders begin to wonder - how much of their struggle is due to quality of their product and pitch, and how much is just plain sexism?
