SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – A promising sign for female tech entrepreneurs: VentureWire reports that online career advice and job listings site The Muse – founded by three women – raised $10m from a female-led venture investor group.
The three-year old New York City-based startup has three hundred companies listing jobs on the site, and diversity is a prime focus for the firm.
Among its three million monthly active users, Muse says 65-percent are women, and 50-percent are non-white. Compare that to LinkedIn, where 45-percent of its 350-million users are women, and 33-percent are non-white.
The Muse also is specific in the age its targeting, focusing on people between 22 and 39, mostly millenials with a dash of Gen-Xers, saying they have a different approach to work than their older colleagues.
