On Tuesday, September 25, College of St. Joseph will team up with the Vermont Women’s Fund to present a free screening of Dream, Girl, a feature length documentary film showcasing the stories of inspiring and ambitious female entrepreneurs. Doors open for networking at 5:30, and the film begins at 6 p.m. The event takes place in CSJ’s Tuttle Hall Theater.
Following the film, CSJ President Jennifer Scott will lead a Q&A panel discussion with four local women entrepreneurs: Paige Carrara, owner of Blush Salon & Beauty Lounge; Leslie Doenges, co-owner of Vermont Sport & Fitness; Whitney Lamy, founder of Castleton Crackers; and Rebekah Wall, owner of Live Love Yoga. Refreshments will be served following the panel.
Dream, Girl follows several extraordinary female entrepreneurs in a variety of industries from startups to billion dollar companies in 3-D printing, publishing, and fashion. The film was originally funded on Kickstarter and raised over $100K in 30 days. The film’s producers Erin Bagwell and Komal Minhas were also named to Oprah’s SuperSoul100.
