“She Started It,” a documentary on female entrepreneurship, will be shown for free at the CoOperative office in Graham, N.C. on Thursday at 6:30 p.m. It is the second documentary they’ve shown this year as part of an effort to raise awareness of entrepreneurship in the community.
CoOperative is a nonprofit collaborative working space with women holding prominent leadership roles.
The documentary follows five female entrepreneurs from different parts of the world as they begin their startups, from getting funded, to forming a board, to failing and rebuilding.
“We’ve got women that are pushing forward in their businesses and being innovative in the way they see problems and solutions in the community,” said Chelsea Dickey, CoOperative’s director of community development. “If we can rally around them and provide the necessary partnerships, then hopefully we get to have more voices at the table, and greater collaboration in the community.”
The screening is sponsored by four female-owned businesses in Alamance County.
