🔥🕵️♀️ It’s Christmas for data nerds: Here's Mary Meeker's 2019 Internet Trends report — everyone’s favourite slide deck. The well-known Silicon Valley VC highlighted slowed growth in e-commerce sales, increased internet ad spending, data growth, as well as the rise of freemium subscription business models, telemedicine, photo-sharing, interactive gaming and the on-demand economy. In case you don't have time to read 333 slides, here's a great summary of the must-read slides. Silicon Valley executives visited Brunello Cucinelli, a luxury designer famous for his $1,000 sweatpants, and two women CEOs were photoshopped into by GQ what was originally a photo featuring 15 men.

Kirsten Green's Forerunner Ventures leads Modern Fertility's Series A. Here is what top VCs look for in women’s fertility startups. Over 180 CEOs speak out on abortion: 'Don't Ban Equality'. GitHub hires former Bitnami co-founder Erica Brescia as COO. The six gender gaps and what women can do to close them. A list of female-founded rocket ship companies by region.
