SHE STARTED IT/👩🏻💻
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, this 2016 documentary 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 Facebook's first female engineer, Ruchi Sanghvi. Explore the cultural roots of female underrepresentation in entrepreneurship, as well as the structural realities women face as they become entrepreneurs.
