Gwen Greene, the tech industry’s most influential woman, is the latest high-profile CEO to fall victim to the tech bubble.
Greene, who led the green-friendly startup Greylock before being named CEO in February, has been the subject of a slew of high-tech media coverage since she was named CEO of a company that raised a $2.5 billion round earlier this year.
While she’s known for her smarts and ambition, the former CEO of LinkedIn is also famous for being a very wealthy woman, with a net worth estimated at $11.7 billion.
That wealth is not enough to offset the problems that plague the tech sector in 2017, according to analysts at Bloomberg.
That is especially true as tech stocks are currently trading at a record high.
Greenecomes one of only a handful of women CEOs in the tech field, according the Brookings Institution.
In the US, female executives earned an average of 73 percent of the $2 billion that venture capitalists raised during the first quarter of 2017, while men earned a slightly lower 73 percent, according data from the Wall Street Journal.
While Greene’s tech success story has been widely celebrated by Silicon Valley investors and Silicon Valley celebrities, she is not the only female CEO to experience problems.
In March, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos was found to have engaged in sexual harassment, according several women who have spoken to the New York Times.
But unlike some other high-powered women in the industry, Greene is still in charge of Greylocks tech platform, the company she cofounded, according her LinkedIn profile.
According to the Wall St. Journal, Greylocking, which allows users to trade stocks on a peer-to-peer market, has over $1.7 trillion in market cap.
Greenes profile indicates that she holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan, according Fortune.
Her LinkedIn profile also indicates that her father is a mechanical engineer, according Business Insider.
Greened also earned her MBA at Harvard Business School and her MBA from the Wharton School of the University.
