Today is international women’s day. There are many great initiatives going on to help raise visibility for this important day, including #StartWithEight, an initiative to encourage male VCs to meet with more female entrepreneurs, which we wrote about here.

In celebration of international women’s day, I wanted to highlight a few female VCs in their 20s and 30s who entrepreneurs and other VCs should know — but may not because they are earlier in their careers — and should be looping in to their deal flow.

I know and admire each of these VCs and think they are terrific investors. If any entrepreneur wants an introduction to any of them, let me know. Apologies if I missed anyone who I’m friends with (age cutoff, notwithstanding) — in fact, please let me know if I’ve missed you and I’ll make sure to add you to the list!
