Festival of Enterprise 2016

Event recap – 17 November 2016

The Festival of Enterprise presented the UK premiere of acclaimed US documentary She Started It.

She Started It is a feature-length film following five passionate, trailblazing young women over two years as they pitch their tech start-ups to VCs, build teams, bring products to market, fail and start again.

It provides a unique view of what it takes to be a tech entrepreneur while exposing the structural realities women face as they become entrepreneurs, including the lack of female role models and investors, and the persistent dearth of venture capital funding made available to companies led by women.

After the screening, there was a panel discussion led by Matt Desmier with our special guests:

  • Tara Flynn – co-founder of Ratio
  • Carl Martin – founder of Wurq, former Head of Digital at Burberry and former Product Lead (London and New York) at ustwo.
