Hey Everyone! I'm the author of Silicon Heroes. I've been working on the graphic novel for 2+ years now and I'm really excited to launch the Indiegogo today. All profits from the Indiegogo campaign will be donated to Girls Who Code and Code.org so please check it out! bit.ly/siliconheroes. If anyone has any questions, please post them here and I'll answer when I can. In the meantime, here's a little more detail on the book: - Silicon Heroes is an 80 page, full color graphic novel. The story follows five young tech workers (all but one are female or minority) who embark on a quest to discover their inner entrepreneurial superpowers. - Silicon Heroes promotes entrepreneurs as positive role models. The story highlights 5 superpowers that map to the 5 behavioral characteristics of successful CEOs. - Silicon Heroes promotes diversity. One major theme highlights the challenges faced by women and minorities in the workplace. The graphic novel medium enforces the inner strength of these characters by visually showing their triumph over challenges. - Silicon Heroes supports future entrepreneurs. All profits from the Silicon Heroes Indiegogo will be donated to Girls Who Code and Code.org. - Silicon Heroes pokes fun at the strange little bubble *cough* magical world that is Silicon Valley.

@rrhoover Thanks for the question. I would LOVE to answer this question...but I'm just not ready to share. Suffice it to say, the real founders that appear in the book are a diverse set of people - men, women, minorities. Some of them will be featured over the next couple weeks from our social media accounts and on our website. Some will stay a secret until the launch! :)
