96% of venture capitalists are men1. Women still account for less than 10% of founders for high growth firms2 and earn only 12.9% of computer science degrees3. "She Started It" gives a new face to the image of the tech entrepreneur: a female face.
Join Johnson & Johnson Innovation JLABS and Women in Bio for a film screening of "She Started It", a new documentary film that follows five trailblazing young female entrepreneurs through their journeys of entrepreneurship.
All proceeds from this event will be donated to Futureboss (http://www.futureboss.org/) a free project based student entrepreneurial training and business plan competition. This program changes lives, makes dreams a reality and provides a path for youth leaders to succeed.

JLABS San Diego
JLABS, part of Johnson & Johnson Innovation, LLC, is a network of life science incubators providing emerging companies many of the advantages of being in a big company, without the capital investment. JLABS offers singular bench tops, modular wet lab units and office space on a short-term basis, allowing companies to pay only for the space they need, with an option to quickly expand when they have the resources to do so. Companies residing at JLABS also have access to core research labs hosting specialized capital equipment and shared administrative areas. JLABS is an open innovation model, and the agreement for space does not grant JLABS or Johnson & Johnson Innovation any stake or rights in the companies, nor will the companies have a guaranteed future affiliation with JLABS. The flagship facility is located in San Diego at Janssen's West Coast Research Center, and JLABS has now two established locations in San Francisco - one through a collaboration with the California Institute for Quantitative Biosciences (QB3) and a second standalone facility - one in Boston through a collaboration with Lab Central, one in Houston through a collaboration with TMC, and one in Toronto through a collaboration with MaRS.
