We were honored to screen GENERATION STARTUP on InDay. It was very inspiring and many themes resonated with our employees: how to overcome fear/failure, how important it is to take intelligent risks, how rewarding it is to do something bigger than yourself and how important it is to find meaning in your work. This event was incredibly popular - we had a full house of 150 employees, standing room only!
GENERATION STARTUP was empowering and raw and truly inspired our team at Trunk Club, New York to be the best version of themselves. The entrepreneurs in the film failed forward, they were honest and hardworking and they persevered through difficult situations that in the end made them stronger and more successful. Our team connected deeply with the movie and felt motivated afterwards to build something significant of their own.
KIVA hosted a packed screening of GENERATION STARTUP at Google’s San Francisco office. The movie was gritty and inspiring in equal measure. I then moderated a discussion around entrepreneurship’s potential to alleviate income inequality and our need for a more inclusive approach to supporting entrepreneurship throughout America. The Generation Startup screening galvanized us to work even harder in chasing after our mission to catalyze the development of entrepreneurs, especially in financially marginalized communities.
With humor and candor, GENERATION STARTUP offers an invaluable glimpse of the “startup years.” The stories are relevant to virtually every college graduate and young entrepreneur, as each learns not only to apply recently gained knowledge across disciplines and situations, but also to find the strength within to fuel that effort.
We were thrilled to host an early screening of GENERATION STARTUP and facilitate a panel discussion that was live streamed to 35 other campuses across the country. It is often difficult for us to convey both the thrills and the challenges of any entrepreneurial endeavor. Young entrepreneurs who watch Generation Startup will no doubt venture into their startups with their eyes wide open.
GENERATION STARTUP energized our community through the authentic story of the hustle, grit and determination it takes to ‘startup’. A must see for aspiring entrepreneurs to reinforce anything is possible!
