Screen the film at a SHINE On Event
Following the premier at the Historic University Theater on February 13, 2011, Biznik will screen the film through unique networking events called "SHINE On". SHINE On events combine a screening with facilitated networking and conversation.
View the film in a social venue. Then break into small groups to discuss what it means to be an entrepreneur.
Share, conspire and network with fellow entrepreneurs who know what it means to go solo.
We provide the questions. You come prepared to get closer to your business and to your business community.
SHINE On events will occur nationally, as anyone can host a SHINE On event! The first SHINE On events will pop up in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Austin and Boston.
Why SHINE On?
SHINE: The Entrepreneur's Journey encourages you to ask yourself what kind of entrepreneur you are, and inspires you to think about what kind of entrepreneur you want to be.
Woven throughout the stories are pearls of wisdom that inspire conversation and discussion.

"My father loaned me $10,000, and I ended up borrowing $10,000 from a bank, and that’s how it all started." - Bruce Livingstone, Founder iStockphoto
"We should have a class within the entrepreneurship program on how to fail. Because chances are you’re going to fail the first time." - Connie Bourassa-Shaw, Director Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship, University of Washington Foster School of Business
How do you define the word ‘entrepreneur’? Did you have a plan? Do you have a plan now? What was the most recent thing you didn’t know, that you had to figure out?
