Let's Back The Startup Kids – A Documentary That Needs To Be Seen

Oh, how I wish I’d done this myself. The Startup Kids is a to-be-released documentary about young web entrepreneurs in the U.S…. and Europe. That’s actually what’s nice about it – for the first time we have (outside of our work here on TechCrunch Europe) some media which finds a common thread of entrepreneurs running between the two continents.

There’s a nice underlying theme here too. The recession has created many new startups often out of sheer necessity, and that’s exactly what these two Icelandic girls, Sesselja Vilhjalmsdottir and Vala Halldorsdottir did – they went out and got started. But although they got an EU grant to do the filming, they still need additional funding. So in order to help them we’re releasing the trailer exclusively on Techcrunch, watch it below. You can pledge your support by backing them on Kickstarter so they can finish the film – and we can get to see 70 interviews with leading entrepreneurs.
