Top 7 Entrepreneurial Movies You Need To See!

Have you ever walked into the movies and come out inspired and feeling like a different person? If you are an entrepreneur or preparing to become one, you should watch these incredible entrepreneurial movies. They can lend to; perspective, inspiration and perhaps even new innovative ideas.

If one of your recommendation isn’t found on this list, definitely let us know in the comments which ones you suggest. See, movies can be a nice addition to a weekly routine. Naturally, we can become caught up in books and podcasts right? However, adding a movie to your list of go-to’s can also be a great idea!

Top 7 Entrepreneurial Movies You Need To See!

The Social Network was a Hollywood blockbuster. It was based on the fairy-tale rise of Mark Zuckerberg and his startup company — Facebook. The Social Network remains a top choice for inspiration because of its storytelling. This is a great movie for learning how to take your dreams and turn them into reality.

Additionally, this movie also teaches us a lot on how to take a company from a college dorm room to the most successful social media platform the world has ever seen (yet)! Let’s not forget that sure, there may be some embellished parts as some reviews suggest — this in my opinion, doesn’t take away from the storyline even if we looked at it as a fictional story.

The Pursuit of Happyness. This is one of my favorite motivational movies, and one of the best movies ever on never giving up. Will Smith’s amazing portrayal of Chris Gardner will give you goosebumps, for real. This is a movie based on Chris’s memoirs. It was a best-selling book and then went on to become a blockbuster movie.

The movie features a powerful, yet simple message: Never, give up!

Moneyball is a movie about the Oakland Athletics and its general manager Billy Beane. The team is an underdog and is losing a lot of money. All of their star players have been picked up by bigger, arguably better teams. Now, Billy needs to look at how to create a winning team without the kind of talent that money can buy.

Similar to the other entrepreneurial movies it shows how entrepreneurs can take an innovative approach to an existing way of doing business, and beat out the competition with little to no money. Sound familiar?

And, we all know I LOVE a great baseball story!

This is the classic underdog story.Rocky. Rocky Balboa is given the chance to fight the heavyweight champ (boxing). He has an opportunity to make a better life for himself by going head to head with the challenge.

This movie teaches a lot having a competitive spirit, and (hopefully) will inspire you to get up and not be intimidated by your competition!

Next up, Jerry Maguire. Get ready to root for the good guy! Jerry shows that, against all odds, success can be driven by values and virtue. With only 2 people on his side, we see how the little guy can succeed when his abilities are put to the test. Show me the moneyyyyyy (one of the most infamous lines from this movie!)

Coming in hot is; Boiler Room! (bad pun!) However, what do you do when your dream job turns out to be your worst nightmare? Well, in business, it might not be possible to achieve everything you want, but there are moral responsibilities that drive us more than money itself. Boiler Room sets out to prove that very case.

Last but certainly not least of the entrepreneurial movies I believe every entrepreneur should watch is … Wall Street. This is potentially one of the best entrepreneurial movies of all time. It follows an ambitious young stockbroker, Bud Fox, who will do just about anything it takes to succeed.Through the movie, he is guided by the nebulous motto ‘greed is good.’

Suddenly, everything comes to a head when he is asked to help do something not only illegal, but morally unforgiving. The movie will teach you not to sell yourself out for money.

Being an entrepreneur isn’t just about being rich and famous.

I believe, it’s about IMPACT.
