The Founding Moms’ Exchange: San Francisco was recently profiled in The San Francisco Chronicle! From the article:
“A growing number of women who are both entrepreneurs and moms have gotten a little bored with the traditional mommy group. But they’re not always interested in staying up for all-night ramen-fueled hackathons with 22-year-old boys. So they’re forming their own networking groups, and their companies are booming.”
