She Started It Movie Screening

  • Silliflicks, Silliman College 509 College Street New Haven, CT, 06511 United States (map)

She Started It is a movie depicting five passionate, trailblazing young women striving to compete and thrive in the ruthlessly competitive boys’ club of high tech start ups. Charismatic Thuy Truong, who has known extreme hardship as an immigrant from Vietnam, seeks to succeed at a prestigious Californian accelerator. Stacey Ferreira, from Phoenix, Arizona needs to raise $1.2 million to launch her internet security company. Brienne Ghafourifar, the youngest college graduate to raise over 1 million, wants to earn her rightful place at male dominated table. Agathe Molinar is trying to turn a profit and find acceptance in the serious male dominated business world of Paris. From Terry, Mississippi, Sheena Allen, a 25-year-old app-maker who is completely self-taught, seeks to become the first African American woman tech entrepreneur to take on Silicon Valley.

Float will be screening She Started It on Thursday, November 10th from 5:00-7:00pm and will be providing pizza! Watch the trailer here.
