As a minority female in this space is there any real hope of success?

Given the challenges facing women and minorities in this field would I be better off pursuing more traditional avenues for career development?

I strongly suggest that you follow your passions in life. Expect the best from people and brace yourself for the worst. What career fields spark your interest?

The challenge of entrepreneurship is greater than any other handicap we may have. People of all races and genders fail at great rate. The color and gender may be a disadvantage but not significant enough compared to the other problems.
There are groups that will help - but i encourage fully trusting yourself and committing to make it happen, if you want to be an entrepreneur.
Entrepreneurs need to have an irrational amount of self-confidence and commitment to make things happen. So just commit and execute.

If you focus on creating the best product for your customers/users, they wont care what color or race you are.. nobody walks into a store and purchase an item thinking "hmm, I wonder what race/gender the person who made this is because it will influence my decision." People purchase it because its a great product. Not to mention there are specific groups geared strictly towards helping generate more entrepreneurs of different ethnicities especially in the tech field.. I would consider that an advantage others do not have.
