STARTUP.COM has already being talked of as a possible Oscar winner for Best documentary of the year. It is enthralling cinema audiences across America and touring the festival circuit both in the States and Europe at the moment. Says the co-filmmaker Hegedus: “I was lookig to make a movie about kids borrowing huge sums for their start-ups and becoming millionaires six months later... There was this amazing energy. People were dropping out of law school, business school and really good jobs because there was this money being given out for good ideas. Instead of leaving school or a job to join a rock band, they were starting Internet companies”.
