In part of Ellevate Network's celebration of International Women's Day and Women's History Month, we will be doing chapter wide screenings of She Started It.
She Started It, a 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 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.
Following the one hour movie, there will be a Q&A with a panel of Philadelphia's very own female technology founders.
