Smashing Stereotypes and
Social Distancing with She Started IT
Let’s celebrate and be inspired this Tech Week, by watching the acclaimed documentary She Started It.
She Started It is a feature length documentary, about five young women running tech startups. The film explores obstacles the women face securing funding and achieving success in a male-dominated industry.
Through storytelling viewers will explore cultural roots of female under representation in entrepreneurship. The documentary weaves in big-picture perspectives from women like investor Joanne Wilson; White House CTO Megan Smith; GoldieBlox CEO Debbie Sterling; and Ruchi Sanghvi, the first female engineer at Facebook.
As you follow these women through their careers as they manage their startups, pitch to funders, build teams, and bring products to market. You will see the way they learn from their failures and face adversity until their dreams of success become reality.
