Why I felt fine about not disclosing my pregnancy to investors â€“ TechCrunch
I did not disclose either pregnancy to my investors during the fundraising process either time. No one would think twice about a male founder who declined to share the details of his health or family status with investors during an initial fundraising meeting. It seemed like the best-case scenario was if disclosing pregnancy made the meeting no worse than it would otherwise have been. Their uncomplicated and positive acceptance of the news even made me wonder if all my internal wrangling about whether to tell investors had been unnecessary. But it is not something that a pregnant founder should feel obligated to disclose.
