Twitter Reaction: Tiger Woods is a winner once again

If there were any doubts that Tiger Woods is officially back, they’ve now been put to rest.

Woods held on to win the Tour Championship by two strokes Sunday, and was a serious contender to take home the FedEx Cup title. Justin Rose’s key birdie on the 18th ensured he finished the season as the top-ranked golfer in the world, but Woods’ performance stole the spotlight this weekend.

As expected, Twitter roared for Tiger’s first win since 2013. Here is some of the best reaction:

Tech’s dirty little secret: Female founders struggle in venture funding game

SALT LAKE CITY — The statistics are sobering.

While 38 percent of U.S. businesses are owned by women, data reflects only about 2 percent of the $85 billion spent in venture capital funding in 2017 went to businesses with all-women founder/executive teams. And, as dismal as that sounds, it’s the largest percentage of annual venture funding that’s backed women-led business in over 10 years, according to data assembled by PitchBook Data Inc.

In addition to the gender-based disparity in funding distribution, the size of the deals offered to women’s businesses was also dwarfed by deals offered to men. Fortune reported earlier this year that the average deal size for women-led businesses in 2017 was just over $5 million, versus the just shy of $12 million offered to male-led businesses, on average.

None of these numbers comes as a surprise to Sunny Washington, the founder and CEO of Because Learning, a tech learning platform that combines lesson plans with electronics kits to boost science, technology, engineering and math skills for K-12 students.
