NEW YORK — After over three hours of sitting, waiting and stressing, Chiquita Evans heard her name called.

She stood, smiled and put on a Warriors cap, striding to the stage backed by the loudest applause of the night. Someone put a microphone in front of her and asked her how it felt. That’s when she finally choked up.

“It changes everything,” she said. “It means everything to me.”

Evans became the first woman ever drafted into the NBA 2K League on Tuesday night, going in the fourth round to Warriors Gaming, which is operated by the NBA’s Golden State Warriors.

A former college and semipro basketball player, Evans is now the esports league’s first female pro, one of the 126 players who will make between $33,000 to $37,000 per season, plus benefits and team housing.

Some have dubbed the Internet of Things, or IoT, the “Intelligence of Things,” and even the “Internet of Everything.” Whatever they call it, there is no doubt that IoT has been steadily emerging and shaping our future. Put simply, IoT eliminates the need for human interaction with other humans or computers to transfer data. 

IoT already has numerous uses — smart homes, connected cars and smart retail to name a few — and it is expected to have an even larger impact on our lives in the future. Gartner reports that in the year 2017, there were more than eight billion IoT-connected devices in the world, while in 2018, that figure surpassed nine billion. It is expected that in 2020, IoT-connected devices worldwide will close to 21 billion.

When it comes to entrepreneurship in the United States, women comprise a smaller percentage of entrepreneurs and start fewer businesses than men. According to the American Survey of Entrepreneurs (ASE), only 24.5% of startups in their first two years are owned by women. Female entrepreneurs, however, have made impressive strides in recent years, showing substantial growth in both the number of female-owned businesses and number of paid employees at female-owned businesses, outpacing their male counterparts.

Seek Capital conducted a study that analyzed the largest metro areas in the U.S. in terms of the percentage of startups owned by women, the number of startups owned by women, the number of employees at female-owned startups and gross sales and receipts of female-owned startups, as well as the most active industry for female entrepreneurs. All data was sourced from the U.S. Census Bureau American Survey of Entrepreneurs.
