Over 91% of decision-makers at U.S. venture capital firms are men, according to a new Axios analysis.

The upside: The nearly 9% mark for women is an increase from 7% at this time in 2017 and from 5.7% in 2016.

The downside: It's still single-digit territory, despite a year of heavy emphasis on the venture industry's gender imbalance.
