'Selfie Generation' Becomes the 'Startup Generation'

'Selfie Generation' Becomes the 'Startup Generation'

Known as the “Selfie Generation,” filmmaker and Academy Award winner Cynthia Wade has a new name for our generation with her new documentary’s title: ‘Generation Start-up.’ The new buzzword for all college graduates, regardless of their degrees, is ‘startup.’

 The very nature of the word insinuates struggle and this exactly what the filmmakers and characters showcase in their new film. The characters are real college graduates who share their story and struggle as they try trailblazing the tech world with their companies.
