Following five young women over two years as they pitch VCs, build teams, bring products to market, fail and start again, SHE STARTED IT takes viewers 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.

The women of SHE STARTED IT are diverse and highly relatable, and they set a powerful example - which we believe will inspire the next generation to dream bigger, and urge today's generation to support women entrepreneurs. The film aims to be part of the movement that will bring more female students into the tech entrepreneurship field. Currently, 96 percent of venture capitalists are men, women still account for less than 10% of founders for high growth firms, and earn only 12.9% of computer science degrees. "You can't be what you can't see!" Now, more than ever, we need young women to see stories of grit, hope and empowerment.
