VENUE: Houston Community College Southwest
ADDRESS: 6815 Rustic Houston, TX 77087
Join Women of Color Exposed for a special screening of She Started It, which follows five passionate, trailblazing young women who strive to compete and thrive in the ruthlessly competitive boys club of high tech start-ups. Launched in 2013, She Started It explores the cultural roots of female under representation in entrepreneurship—including pervasive self-doubt, fear of failure, and risk aversion among young women. It exposes, too, 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. After the film there will be a power packed panel of Female Founders and Funders to discuss the film and the future of women in tech.
