Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

On this episode, Entrepreneur Network partner Business Rockstars interviews Madeline Fraser and Beatrice Fischel-Bock, the co-founders of Hutch (a Los Angeles-based home design startup), to talk about their business philosophies and what it's like to try to build a business as a woman. There are some positives -- often, women entrepreneurs tend to be less common and thus more memorable -- but the negatives are pretty astounding.

For example, Fischel-Bock recounts an experience where a venture capitalist chose to rub her shoulders during a fundraising meeting. Now, try to imagine that happening to a man!

Watch the video to learn more about Fraser and Fischel-Bock's entrepreneurial journey.
