The Film That Has Daymond John, Arianna Huffington, and Entrepreneurs Everywhere Talking, ‘Generation Startup’ documents the stories of six young entrepreneurs, and what it’s like to build a company in America. Directed by Academy Award winner Cynthia Wade and award-winning filmmaker Cheryl Miller Houser, the film aims to celebrate risk-taking, urban revitalization, and diversity–while encouraging entrepreneurship as a stimulus to the U.S. economy. Shark Tank star Daymond John said the movie “will light your imagination, stir your soul and inspire you to take a shot just like its fearless characters do.” Arianna Huffington, founder of The Huffington Post, called the film “an exhilarating, uplifting, and honest look at what it really takes to launch a startup.”
The film receives further glowing reviews from a number of entrepreneurs, including Reid Hoffman (co-founder of LinkedIn), Steve Case (co-founder of AOL), and Tyra Banks, among others.
