UP--Generation Start-up: Learning to Fail. Redefining Success.

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

GENERATION START-UP takes us to the front lines of entrepreneurship in America, capturing on film the struggles and triumphs of six recent college graduates who put everything on the line to build start-ups in Detroit. Shot over 17 months, it’s an honest, in-the-trenches look at what it takes to launch a start-up. Directed by Academy Award winner Cynthia Wade and award-winning filmmaker Cheryl Miller Houser, the film celebrates risk-taking, urban revitalization, and diversity while delivering a vital call-to-action — with entrepreneurship at a record low, the country’s economic future is at stake.
