Hi Candelaria,

These are some of my recommendations with some notes on the side:

1. Silicon Valley - good comedy series and does have technical/educational bits as well.

2 Startup (Kdrama) - Very heartfelt, a great watch for startup enthusiasts and doesn't shy from jargon.

3. Startup (American) - Suspensufull but does trail off after the first few seasons and not great with technicalities. Sometimes it feels like the writer are just throwing words around that they've heard people say

4. The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley - Story of Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes. If you are looking for a real-life story or documentary this is for you.

5 The Social Network - The dramatisation of the origins of Facebook but keeps the viewer glued from start to finish

BONUS - Super Pumped  A new series about the origins of Uber will be coming out soon starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as founder and former CEO Travis Kalanick

hope this helps your next movie night!
