She Started It is a feature length documentary film on women tech founders, shot on location in Silicon Valley, NYC, Europe, Vietnam, Mississippi & more, that aims to highlight successful role models for young women, to encourage more girls to develop technical and entrepreneurial skills.
Entrepreneurs are the new rock stars. The names that come to mind are usually Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg or Steve Jobs. Rarely does one think a young woman. And why would they? Only 3 percent of all tech start-ups are founded by women. She Started It is a debut documentary film by Nora Poggi & Insiyah Saeed aiming to dispel those myths and spotlight those women that are starting companies. She Started It profiles five of those driven women – they are; Stacey Ferreira, Thuy Truong, Brienne Ghafourifar, Agathe Molinar & Sheena Allen. The film follows a few of these young entrepreneurs over the course of 2+ years and illuminates the ups and downs they face as they attempt to build their new businesses, for the first time on screen in an exciting, narrative, story driven film. By showcasing these young role models, we hope to ignite that spark, “If she could do it, I could do it!”
The film is set to premiere in Spring 2016. Learn more at SheStartedItFilm.com.
