“Dream, Girl” Documentary Screening

It’s time we stop telling girls they can be anything they want to be and actually show them what it means to be a leader.

General Assembly is delighted to present, ‘Dream, Girl’, a documentary that follows the paths of five female entrepreneurs as they go from managing brand new startups to million dollar industries.

‘Dream, Girl’ traces the stories and shares the experiences of these female founders; from being underestimated by their male counterparts; to getting the courage to take the leap and quit their nine-to-fives; to funding and financing their start-ups; and taking a break from their careers to focus on families. Each woman has an authentic story unique to her individual experience, yet we learn our stories are interconnected in ways that uplift us all, in business and in life.

Where: General Assembly Seattle 1218 3rd Ave Seattle, WA 98101

When: Thursday, JAN  12, 2017, 6:30 – 8:30PM
