Recently at a panel discussion in UnPluggd, we had a women panel which discussed if women want to be called founders or women founders. While a lot of women are already upset for not getting the equal perception or treatment, there are may be many more things which are not going right.
Mahesh Murthy is a known VC in the startup ecosystem and recently a friend of a Mumbai-based woman founder has come out and written openly of “What Mahesh offers especially to girls for getting their startup funded”.
In her post, she first clearly blamed media of not taking up the story saying that “Mahesh has many media contacts and he pays them cheques”
The below pictures will give you an idea of what has happened.
Note : We have reached out to Mahesh for comments. By no means, we are judging anything here (infact it’s plain reporting).
