GENERATION STARTUP: A Powerful Feature Documentary About Six Young Entrepreneurs

GENERATION STARTUP captures the struggles and triumphs of six recent college graduates who put everything on the line to build startups in Detroit as part of the fellowship program Venture for America. Shot over 17 months, it’s an honest, in-the-trenches look at what it takes to launch a startup. 

Following the documentary, please stay for a panel discussion with Cheryl Miller Houser (co-director and producer), Andrew Yang (founder and CEO of Venture for America) and current VFA Fellow Haley Shoaf to talk about the making of the documentary and the experience of these Fellows.
