> she thinks we're better off not listing her as a co-founder.

Why does she think this?

That's her opinion: "It's perceived that in general women are more emotional, so that may throw up red flags to some investors, since they may consider it a higher risk that the team could split up"


So what? It's also "perceived" that women are more scheming, which could be a thorough advantage in business.


Probably that's the main reason for some VCs to especially welcome female startup CEOs, lol. But we're talking not about CEO.
