The startup world may have a majority of men calling the shots, but in Boston, at least, it’s far from a monopoly.

Last night at MassChallenge, women founders of 29 startups taking part in this year’s accelerator showcased their achievements so far. That’s nearly a fourth of the 128 MassChallenge startups this year—still a smaller portion than many would hope, but a step in the right direction in such a male-dominated field.

Update: I’ve been informed that 47 of the current MassChallenge companies—or 36 percent—have at least one female founder.

Click through the gallery above to learn about a few of the founders I met last night, and check out the full list of women-founded companies in MassChallenge 2014 below.
