The Startup Kids

The York News and Features says that Mark Zukerberg Won’t be the only Twentysomething Tech Founder with his own Movie.

The Startup Kids is a documentary about young web entrepreneurs in the U.S. and Europe. It contains interviews with the founders of Vimeo, Soundcloud, PlayFish, WordPress, Posterous and many others who talk about how they started their company and their lives as an entrepreneur. The documentary also compares the different environments, resources and attitudes of entrepreneurs on either side of the Atlantic.

The Startup Kids is a project run by two ladies in Iceland that have their own startup company focusing on social gaming. The are old timers in board plays since kids and developed their own board game in Iceland in 2009 that sold out. They are now developing gaming for the internet.

They are located in an innovation centre down town in Reykjavik, two floors of redundant bank space from the properly dead GLITNIR bank. The best use of dead business is to grow new business, but a more healthy one than corrupt banking. See here a some thoughts about that from John Thackara.
