Male vs. Female Bootstrappers


Jory Des Jardins, one of the founders of BlogHer, has written an interesting post about the difference between men and women boostrappers.

She contrasts her own experience with that of the Meetro founders, who apparently lived together and combined a frat house atmosphere with a startup. Jory doesn't think she could do it.

I believe that men consider extreme circumstances such as commune start-up building to be a bonding experience. However, putting Lisa, Elisa, and I in a single apartment for six months with only one bathroom and Top Ramen would result in one or all of us being committed to an institution.
