96% of venture capitalists are men1. Women still account for less than 10% of founders for high growth firms2 and earn only 12.9% of computer science degrees3. “She Started It” gives a new face to the image of the tech entrepreneur: a female face.

Join Johnson & Johnson Innovation JLABS and the Innovation Forum for a film screening of “She Started It”, a new documentary film that follows five trailblazing young female entrepreneurs through their journeys of entrepreneurship.

The movie screening will be followed by a short panel discussion featuring local influential women in business.
