Watch 'Generation Startup' in Kyle Hall

The Center for Innovation and Analytics is presenting the documentary “Generation Startup,” at 5 p.m. on Nov. 16 and 17 in Kyle Hall 340.

The movie captures the struggles and triumphs of six recent college graduates who put everything on the line to build startups in Detroit.

Shot over 17 months, the movie examines what it takes to launch a startup.

Directed by Academy Award winner Cynthia Wade and award-winning filmmaker Cheryl Miller Houser, “the film celebrates risk-taking, urban revitalization and diversity while delivering a vital call-to-action – with entrepreneurship at a record low, the country’s economic future is at stake,” its website says.

Admission is free to the movie, and a pre-event social with free pizza is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own drinks to the social. Seating is limited to 250 people per showing.

Under Radford University’s College of Business and Economics, the Center for Innovation and Analytics focuses on student learning and faculty involvement in solving real-life business problems in active collaboration with industry partners.

A goal for the center is to become a destination of choice for students, entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, alumni, community partners, faculty and staff interested in innovation and analytics.
