Good Read | Hot or not? Why good-looking men get all the funding
…a recent study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science demonstrated pretty effectively the main reason women come out badly on the venture capital funding front is –wait for it–they are not good-looking men. Put another way, venture capitalists, who are overwhelmingly male, would rather fund a handsome guy than any woman, regardless of the female entrepreneur’s attractiveness quotient. In case it makes you feel any better, ugly men fared about as well as women. FYI, that does not make me feel any better.
