About She Started It
It's been said that only 3% of all tech start-ups are founded by women. Two filmmakers want to help change that.

Shot in Silicon Valley, Paris and Vietnam, She Started It follows the stories of five young, ambitious women (Thuy, Brienne, Stacey, Sheena, and Agathe) who will stop at nothing to pursue their dreams and change the world in the process.
