She Started It is a feature length documentary film on women tech entrepreneurs, shot on location in Silicon Valley, NYC, Europe, Vietnam, Mississippi & more, that aims to highlight successful role models for young women.
It is the world`s first film to show the behind the scenes of running a tech start-up as a young woman. Along the way, it weaves in big-picture perspectives from women like star investor Joanne Wilson ; White House CTO Megan Smith; GoldieBlox CEO Debbie Sterling; Ruchi Sanghvi, the first female engineer at Facebook and many others. 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.
