Leo After Hours: She Started It!
May 19, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$10
As part of our Leo After Hours series, The Leonardo is proud to screen “She Started It,” the first documentary film to reveal a behind-the-scenes look at female tech startup founders. The film follows five women over two years as they craft their startups, pitch for funding, fail and start again, while also featuring perspectives from investor Joanne Wilson, former White House CTO Megan Smith and Ruchi Sanghvi, the first female engineer at Facebook.
She Started It dives into the foundations of female under-representation in entrepreneurship, as well as the realities confronting women entrepreneurs such as a lack of female role models and investors, and lack of access to venture capital funding for women-led companies. Following the 50-minute film, attendees are invited to participate in a panel discussion with local female founders where we will discuss reactions to the film, how the themes manifest themselves in Utah, and ways to take action to make entrepreneurship more representative.
