In documentary following five passionate, trailblazing young women who strive to compete and thrive in the ruthlessly competitive boys’ club of high tech startups, She Started It shares the unique stories hoping to inspire women around the globe.
Last week, Elevate Network hosted a night of cocktails and conversation with a great panel including:
- Nora Poggi (Director & Producer, She Started It)
- Tatiana Whytelord (President & Founder, INTELLIGENT BRAND EXTENSION, LLC)
- Angela Lee (Founder, 37 Angels)
- Melissa Halfon (Co-founder, VidCode)
Over the course of the evening, they explored the cultural roots of female underrepresentation in entrepreneurship—including pervasive self-doubt, fear of failure, and risk aversion among young women.
The film also exposes 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.
IBE is proud to have invested in this film and hope that it will lead the conversation and raise awareness to what many of the strong women in business must fight for. Watch the trailer here!
