Free Film Screening: 'Generation Startup'

Wednesday, January 18, 2017 - 4:30pm

The Arizona Center for Innovation, Arizona's premier incubator for both the University and Community, proudly presents the free premier of "Generation Startup."

"Generation Startup" is:

  • "A must-see film with a lot of educational value as millennials attempt to achieve what most people only dream of." – Stephanie Delateur, Daily Titan.
  • "A warm, uplifting portrait of the potentials to be found in startup culture." – Katie Walsh, Los Angeles Times

From IMDb Plot Summary: "'Generation Startup' takes us to the front lines of entrepreneurship in America, capturing the struggles and triumphs of six young entrepreneurs, straight out of college ready to put their dreams to the ultimate test. These six subjects—Dextina, Labib, Max, Brian, Avery and Kate—all put their lives on hold to pursue a more intense practice: entrepreneurship. Shot over 17 months, it's an honest, in-the-trenches look at what it takes to launch a startup."

Immediately following the movie, we will briefly discuss the Tucson Entrepreneurial Scene with a special panel of local entrepreneurs and business experts that will take questions from the audience. Join us for this interactive session.  

Admission is free and RSVP is encouraged. Please RSVP here.
