Dell’s ‘Alice’ Will Guide Women Through VC Wonderland

One of the interesting things at Dell EMC World last week came from Karen Quintos, the most powerful woman at Dell. Karen is responsible for its Entrepreneur in Residence program, which, among other things, focuses on equipping and helping woman entrepreneurs. Dell Technologies apparently has created “Alice,” a female-focused artificial intelligence focused on helping support and drive innovative firms backed by women. This is important, because it appears that only 3 percent of venture capitalist-funded new firms are founded by women.
