Posted: September 14, 2022 | Word Count: 183
Women have shaped — and made — history through resilience. Stacy’s® Pita Chips, a woman-founded brand dedicated to helping women rise, believes that we must celebrate women’s strength in the face of adversity and recognize the triumphs of those who came before us. To do so, Stacy’s created Rise, a brand-new short film produced in collaboration with female-founded Hello Sunshine, as well as some of today’s most renowned storytellers. Rise spotlights the inspiring stories of three previous winners of the Stacy’s Rise Project and depicts the daily trials, tribulations and achievements of powerful women entrepreneurs. Take a behind-the-scenes look at how the team captured these incredible stories.
The announcement of the film happens in tandem with the fourth iteration of the Stacy’s Rise Project, a grant and mentorship program focused on equipping women founders with the tools they need to succeed. Since 2017, Stacy’s Pita Chips has connected thousands of women with each other and provided nearly $1,000,000 in funding. Applications are open beginning on September 12.
