Looks like a pretty stellar group of women coming out of Twitter to form an investment group called #Angels. Excellent reasoning too:
Technology is no longer an industry category. As has been well-chronicled, it has become a foundation to every business, ranging from healthcare to transportation to finance to education and beyond. Every company will be a technology company. And the lessons learned from building a company like Twitter are relevant to an increasingly wide range of products, businesses, and industries.
Every single client we have that “builds an app” as their business I tell the same thing; “You’re building a software company”. It doesn’t matter which industry the company works within. Perhaps I should change what I say to “You’re building a technology company”.
