Join us in this movie screening: She Started It and learn from a panelist of local female entrepreneurs that will share their very own stories as to how they got started as an entrepreneur in the East End, and how can YOU get started with making your dreams a reality!
She Started It is the first, behind the scenes of running a tech startup as a young woman, following 5 ladies from the US, France and Vietnam, form their business teams, pitch to VC’s, and bring their products to market.
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.
“The time is long overdue to encourage more women to dream the impossible dream.” — Sheryl Sandberg
