  • 96% of venture capitalists are men (1).
  • Women still account for less than 10% of founders for high growth firms (2) and earn only 12.9% of computer science degrees (3).

She Started It gives a new face to the image of the tech entrepreneur: a female face.

On Wednesday, February 8th, the CITRIS Foundry, Berkeley Innovators, Student Technology Council, and the Sutardja center for Entrepreneurship & Technology will be hosting a screening and discussion of She Started It, a new documentary film that follows five trailblazing young female entrepreneurs through their journeys of entrepreneurship.
