Acelera Startups in Silicon Valley (2015) - a documentary on what we have to learn from Silicon Valley to apply in our region

We are a group of people in Brazil who tries to help people towards their dream through the creation of innovative and creative (and sustainable) businesses. We were crazy enough to go to Silicon Valley with just a camera and the willing to learn lessons from creative and innovative people (with "big" names such as Guy Kawasaki and Eric Ries) and share them with other people from different parts of the world, who want to make an impact in their regions and to make the world a better place. Personally, this is my first attempt on achieving my own dream: tp be a director. Feedbacks would be much appreciated. Thank you very much.
