Morristown-Beard School is pleased to invite the community to a screening of Generation Startup, a documentary about entrepreneurship in America produced by MBS graduate Brian Egan ’08, on Friday, February 3rd at 7 p.m. in Founders Hall on campus, 70 Whippany Road in Morristown. This is a free event.
This extraordinary film follows the risk, challenges and successes of six recent college graduates as they strive to build startups in Detroit. It celebrates risk-taking, urban revitalization and diversity while delivering a call to action – with entrepreneurship at a record low, the country’s economic future is at stake.
The young men and women of Generation Startup are part of Venture For America (VFA), a program that sends recent college graduates to work at startups in 15 cities around the country to train as entrepreneurs, and then helps them launch their own companies.
“It has been pretty amazing to see how many different age groups and demographics react well to the film,” said Egan. “The themes of the film and the Morristown-Beard School attitude toward education and creating well-rounded students are extremely similar. I feel that my MBS education put me in a position to take the risk and make this film. My story is very similar to the subjects in Generation Startup, as I still work at a two-person startup.”
Morristown-Beard School is a co-educational college preparatory day School for grades 6-12. For more than 125 years, the School has maintained a personal approach to education and a steadfast commitment to preparing students for academic and personal success.
