Film Screening of Generation Startup with Leslie Miley

April 18, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us for an exclusive, one-night screening of GENERATION STARTUP, a feature documentary that follows six recent college graduates building startups in Detroit. Directed by Academy Award winner Cynthia Wade and Academy Award-nominated Cheryl 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.

Post screening Kapor Center for Social Impact and Oakland Startup Network will host a special fireside chat with Leslie Miley, Venture for America’s first Executive in Residence (EIR) and Director of Engineering at Slack. Leslie will share how he’s fueling startup ecosystem growth outside of Silicon Valley as Venture for America’s EIR.
