During Global Entrepreneurship Week 2012, a select number of cities are hosting featured screenings of The Startup Kids, a documentary about young web entrepreneurs in the U.S. and Europe.

The film contains interviews with the founders of Soundcloud, Dropbox, Vimeo, Playfish, Rainmakers, Kiip, InDinero, Foodspotting and many others who talk about their experiences launching a startup and their lives as an entrepreneur.

The Startup Kids film is being screened in the following locations: 

  • London: Entrepreneurs 2012 -- The London screeening of the film occurs as part of a larger conference that is headlined by former U.S. President Bill Clinton. Entrepreneurs 2012 is a four-day conference features an impressive collection of entrepreneurs and business leaders.
  • Berlin: Start-up Day -- Hosted by the Technical University in Berlin, the screening occurs as part of Start-up Day on November 14 at Audimax. The event features local-based startups and the entrepreneurs behind them--including Soundcloud, whose co-founder Alexander Ljung is interviewed in the film. 
  • San Francisco: WiX Lounge SF -- Where else in San Francisco would you expect to see a film about young tech entrepreneurs than a co-working and event space targeted to creative professionals and startups? WiX Lounge SF is screening the film on November 15 from 6 - 9 pm and pairing it with some drinks and a networking session--naturally. 

The Startup Kids was made by two Icelandic entrepreneurs, Vala Halldorsdottir and Sesselja Vilhjalmsdottir, who founded their first company shortly after the economic collapse of Iceland and wanted to motivate other young people to become entrepreneurs.

Interested in screening the film, but not located in one of those cities? You can request to host your own screening (requires a license fee).
