Entrepreneurship, venture capital
Read more from Elaine on Medium.
Venture capitalist at Blue Sky VC Elaine Stead isn’t afraid to talk about the hard issues facing startup founders, with her Medium blog more often than not covering areas such as mental health and wellbeing, conflict and persistence. As an investor, she’s also been known to pen opposing views such as why startups shouldn’t raise venture capital.
Stead blogs frequently, sometimes three or four times a week, and each post is rarely similar to the next. As one of Australia’s most vocal and prominent female venture capitalists, her insights are a must read for founders wanting to go beyond the typical “thought leader” bubble.
