We believe that we need an entirely new model to support female innovators on the path to creating a better world.
And to create a new model we have to shift our mindset.
The result of our Winner Takes All mindset is that EIGHT men now have the same wealth as half the planet; 3.5 billion people. Money is currency. It’s based on the term current and meant to be in flow, not held on to by a few. The SheEO model is designed to put money in perpetual flow, to benefit all of humanity, now and for generations to come.
90% of all economies are made up of small and medium sized businesses who are starved of capital because we have accumulated capital in such a small number of hands which leads to a drive for only businesses that scale. Go Big or. Go Home. We need another model of growth that creates sustainability and allows ventures to grow at their own pace, on their own terms.
We live in a world focused on control and top-down decision-making. At SheEO we trust the intuition of 1000s of women over a few experts in the room to decide on ‘winners’ and we build a trusting environment of support based on radical generosity.
When the market crashed in 2008 we found $17 trillion in 3 weeks to bail out the banks. That’s equivalent to 600 years on the planet without hunger. We have more than enough money. It’s how we allocate it that is the problem.
Gifts exist to create a relationship. Your $1100 contribution is a gift that will keep on giving as it’s paid back into the fund and loaned out again. It is not a transaction where you get your money back, it’s a pay-it-forward relationship that keeps on giving.
Our drive to accumulate is based on a fear of not having enough. Stepping into a space where you are surrounded by radically generous women starts to build the recognition that you have so much more than you think you do, all you have to do is ask.
