Which Companies Stand the Best Chance of Going Public in 2016

inc.com — What's the outlook for the IPO market this year? Everyone seems to agree: It could be disappointing, or it could rebound in the second half. And, oh--there's SoulCycle. SoulCycle, after all, filed for its IPO back in July, and has many of the qualities that investors like: It's profitable, it's growing, its customers are sufficiently fanatical, and it's got plenty of room to expand.

New Study on Women in Tech Reveals Rampant and Sometimes Dangerous Sexism

inc.com — Sexism and sexual harrassment in Silicon Valley are way, way worse than you think. When I was reporting my story on why the next Steve Jobs will be a woman, this is the line I heard on Silicon Valley and sexism: That flat-out sexism and discrimination in tech is rare and getting more so.

5 Reasons 2015 Was a Darn Good Year for Women Entrepreneurs

inc.com — I admit it: I'm a glass-half-full kind of gal. So when I look back at 2015, and the progress women made (or didn't make), I tend to see the highlights. I see more research showing women to be frighteningly competent, I see new companies succeeding, and I see success in fundraising.
