Celebrate with Ellevate Network as we support PHX StartUp Week and kick off Women's History Month. Ellevate Network is a sponsor of this screening of She Started It.
She Started It is a full-length documentary following five passionate, trailblazing young women who strive to compete and thrive in the ruthlessly competitive boys’ club of high tech startups.
She Started It gives a new face to the popular image of the tech entrepreneur: a female face.
Following five women over two years as they pitch VCs, build teams, bring products to market, fail and start again, She Started It takes viewers on a global roller coaster ride from San Francisco to Mississippi, France and Vietnam. Along the way, it 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.
Through intimate, action-driven storytelling, She Started It explores the cultural roots of female under representation 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.
