GENERATION STARTUP explores a range of themes through the unique perspectives of its six diverse characters as they learn to fail and redefine success on their own terms. These include: the realities of launching a company; the impact entrepreneurship has within a community; the need for greater racial and gender diversity in the workplace with three strong role models; the discomfort that comes with personal growth; and the deep fulfillment of becoming comfortable moving outside our comfort zone to reach for a goal.

“GENERATION STARTUP is a celebration of young entrepreneurs who embrace uncertainty, take risks, and dare to fail on their path to success.” –Arianna Huffington, Founder, Huffington Post
