With every industry ripe for technological disruption and better access to funds for entrepreneurs, Randi Zuckerberg said it's a "wonderful" time to be a businesswoman.
Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Zuckerberg Media (and sister of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg), told CNBC that at the moment, it takes a shorter time and relatively less funds to build a company than it did in the past.
"There's never been a better time to be an entrepreneur in the world today," she said. "We're so open to new ideas, new way of doing things, almost every single industry in the world right now is open to being disrupted with technology and entrepreneurship."
Still, the start-up scene remains dominated by male entrepreneurs and investors.
Last October, a Crunchbase study found that between 2012 and the third quarter of 2017, only 10 percent of venture dollars globally — about $46 billion — went to start-ups with at least one female founder.
Zuckerberg has had a lengthy experience being one of the few women at the front lines of the tech industry during her time at Facebook. She said sometimes she would advise women in tech to have a "man's name like Randi."
"Because I can't tell you how many meetings I got because I would email someone and they thought that it was a man that was coming to meet them. Then, I would show up," she quipped.
But the situation is getting better for women, according to Zuckerberg.
