Join us for a screening of the film, SHE STARTED IT, featuring the story of five passionate women who will stop at nothing to pursue their startup dreams. The documentary follows the young female entrepreneurs over two years as they pitch VCs, build teams, bring products to market, fail and start again (Watch Trailer Here).
Through intimate, action-driven storytelling, SHE STARTED IT explores the cultural roots of female underrepresentation in entrepreneurship—including pervasive self-doubt, fear of failure, and risk aversion among young women. It exposes, too, the structural realities women face as they become entrepreneurs, including lack of female role models and investors, and the persistent dearth of venture capital funding made available to women-led companies. SHE STARTED IT is one of the “5 must-watch movies in 2017” according to Inc Magazine, and has screened at over 16+ film festivals, hundreds of venues, schools and corporations around the world.
Following the film there will be a facilitated group discussion over lunch. This is not a female-only event. Men are highly encouraged to join the event as well.
This is a free event and seats are limited. Make sure you register to save a seat!
