Description

​The Brisbane Women in Tech Salesforce User Group is hosting a premiere red carpet event on 10 May 2017, at New Farm Cinema in Brisbane.


The event will open with complimentary drinks & nibbles at 5.30pm, followed by a panel discussion on entrepreneurship as a woman (speakers TBC), with screening commencing at 6.50pm. The film runtime is 80 mins.




Young tech entrepreneurs, with their overnight millionaire status & cool products are the new rock stars of the business world. When one thinks of what that tech rock star may look like, the cliché is of young guy in a hoodie. *coughMarkZuckerbergcough*


​Rarely does one visualize a woman. And why would they? ​Only 3 per cent of all tech start-ups are founded by women.


She Started It is a feature length documentary, shot on location in Silicon Valley, NYC, Europe, Vietnam, Mississippi and more, aiming to dispel those myths and highlight successful role models for young women.


​She Started It profiles five driven women during their day to day lives. The film follows these tenacious, young entrepreneurs over the course of 2+ years and illuminates the ups and downs they face as they attempt to build their new businesses.




With help from our sponsors, Salesforce & Skedulo, we're able to bring this event to you completely free of charge. Yes, that's snacks, drinks & a movie entirely free! So... how about making a donation in lieu of ticket payment?

We'd love to support the local Australian Tech Girls Movement and we're collecting any donations you feel comfortable giving, via this Eventbrite page & on the night.

The Tech Girls Movement was founded by Dr Jenine Beekhuyzen to promote positive role models to encourage and raise awareness of STEM careers for girls.
