The film follows five young women over two years as they pitch VCs, build teams, bring products to market, fail and start again.
She Started It takes the audience 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. Help us inspire the next generation to dream bigger, and urge today’s generation to support women entrepreneurs. The screening and discussion to follow are brought to you by iWIST, Innovation Island, The Nanaimo Chamber and VIU Women’s Studies
