She Started It: A documentary following five passionate, trailblazing young women who strive to compete and thrive in the ruthlessly competitive boys club of high tech startups.
Film - Documentary | February 8 | 6-8:30 p.m. | Sutardja Dai Hall, Banatao Auditorium
96% of venture capitalists are men (1). Women still account for less than 10% of founders for high growth firms (2) and earn only 12.9% of computer science degrees (3). She Started It gives a new face to the image of the tech entrepreneur: a female face.
Join the CITRIS Foundry, Berkeley Innovators, Student Technology Council, and the Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship & Technology for a film screening of "She Started It," a new documentary film that follows five trailblazing young female entrepreneurs through their journeys of entrepreneurship.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion led by Abigail Jacob, Materials Science and Engineering '18, Engineering Student Council Vice President and Head of Internal Affairs, and a Unit Supervisor for Residental Computing; Tarrika Soni, Cognitive Science '15, User Ops at Nerd Wallet.
