We know the names of Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and Mark Zuckerberg. But what about the female entrepreneurs? What’s their story?
Erin Bagwell and Komal Minhas are the producers of Dream, Girl the documentary showcasing the stories of inspiring and ambitious female entrepreneurs. Dream, Girl first premiered at the White House May 26th, 2016 followed by a sold out screening at the iconic Paris Theater in New York City. Powered by a Kickstarter community that helped them raise $104K to create the film, their story has been featured in Forbes, TED, Vogue, and The Washington Post and they were both named on Oprah’s SuperSoul100 List- a list featuring extraordinary individuals that live life intentionally, create great social impact, and bring inspiration to others. Dream, Girl was named the number one feminist documentary to watch by the Huffington Post.
While working 9 to 5, Erin Bagwell felt the doldrums of corporate America eating away at her soul. But outside of work, she poured her heart into telling the stories of inspiring women on her blog, Feminist Wednesday. Erin’s lifelong dream was to make a feature length film, and she realized she could combine her two passions by making a film about the amazing women she was meeting. So fueled by coffee, a drive to change the world, and a feminist agenda, Erin quit her job to launch a Kickstarter campaign that raised $100K in 30 days. "Dream, Girl" - the documentary showcasing the stories of inspiring and ambitious female entrepreneurs - was born.
Then Erin met Komal Minhas, and both their lives changed forever. Dedicated to amplifying the stories of women and girl’s Komal brings an unparalleled energy to producing, and creating new standards for distributing independent films. Business partners, and best friends these two work side by side and live only blocks away from each other in Brooklyn, ready to take on Hollywood’s gender gap one ambitious film at a time.
