    • Share:
    WENATCHEE, WA – The documentary SHE STARTED IT gives a new face to the popular image of the tech entrepreneur: a female face. 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.
     
    This documentary will be shown on Thursday, September 28th at the Numerica Performing Arts Center. Immediately following the documentary, local female business owners will take the stage and share their reactions to the documentary and respond to questions about their entrepreneurial experience in North Central Washington. Kelli Scott of the Wenatchee World will moderate the panel of female business owners, which includes:
