We are sure that the movie is going to give you a new point of view to think about your ideas and decisions.

  1. Startup.com

Startup.com is not a very popular movie but a highly recommended one. It is more like a documentary which revolves around a real life startup named GovWorks and analyzes its rise as well as downfall. Initially, GovWorks raises around $60 million from various corporates like New York Investment Fund, KKR, Hearst Interactive etc. But the movie takes a turn explaining the dotcom period’s doom and dust and showing the downfall of the company because of threatened business partnership and friendship.

The documentary beautifully explains the topics like capital raising, entrepreneurship skills, management skills, team building and management etc.

  1. Pirates of Silicon Valley

Pirates of Silicon Valley is not a movie and actually a documentary kind of video originally made for TV and released in the year 1999. It shows you the initial days when the leading tech giants very competing among each other and resulted in the rise of Steve Jobs and Bill Gates. The movie also provides a good detail about the private life and relationships of both the masterminds.

The movie will motivate you to the limits and you can find very crucial points that every entrepreneur should follow in order to become successful.

  1. Wall Street

Wall Street is a different kind of movie about a man who pushes himself in order to achieve success and power. Bud Fox (played by Charlie Sheen), is a very ambition stock broker on Wall Street who is riding on an economic roller coaster ride and following one simple mantra, i.e. “Greed is good”. You can learn a lot about portfolio management, investment principles and finance and capital market from this movie. In addition to that, the movie also shows the negative side of this success and power and how Fox gets along with the glamorous desires and pride.

  1. The Pursuit of Happyness

The Pursuit of Happyness is my personal favorite and is a must-watch if you haven’t watched it till now. The movie is based on the true story of a person named Chris Gardner (played by Will Smith) whose life struggle will give you the motivation to never give up. No doubt, The Pursuit of Happyness is the most heart touching story for all the movie lovers who will see the struggle one has to face in order to follow and achieve his dreams.

In the movie, Chris is not doing well with his current business and that is also why his wife leaves him and his child. At one point of time he is homeless and unable to provide food to him as well as his child, but the sacrifices he makes and the passion he shoes for his goal is worth watching.
