“I am a single mom, I’m Indigenous, I have no business background and no assets. I started my company in my crockpot in my kitchen. Do you think any big bank would have supported me? Not a chance. SheEO has had my back, they saw the value in me + my business. I’m now in 800 stores across the country. We’re exporting to two other countries and we’re selling online worldwide.
No question, I would not be here without SheEO.”

Our Venture Stories
“I have experienced the collective power of the SheEO community, we have everything we need here, all you need to do is ask.
If you’re a woman or non-binary founder of a social impact Venture, apply now. It’s been a phenomenal experience for me.”
– Brandi DeCarli, Farm From A Box
SheEO Activators democratically vote to support various types of Ventures who create significant positive impact across all sectors; wellness, AI, education, food sustainability, waste reduction, energy efficiency, inclusion, and biotech innovation. We call it working on the World’s To-Do List. They are women-owned and women-led and create new models, new mindsets, and new solutions that benefit humanity. Currently, our Founders range in age from 22-70+ years old. We are agnostic about age or sector or structure. If you are a for-profit, not-for-profit or charity that generates revenue and can pay back a loan over 5 years, then you can apply.
In order to apply to be a SheEO Venture, you must meet all eligibility requirements including the minimum recurring revenue. Many Ventures begin as Activators, and leverage the network to get the support they need through our community of radically generous women with all different sorts of expertise and connections.
The 0%-interest loan has a five-year term for each Venture. Ventures pay back their loans in 20 equal installments over a five year period. We track Venture milestones and success annually and report those results out to the community. As the funds are paid back, the money gets reinvested into the fund and loaned out again to new Ventures.
You will be asked standard identifying questions about your Venture, plus these questions.
At SheEO, we trust the intuition of Activators to determine/select which Ventures are funded. These Activators are asked to keep the following in mind:
“To all the creators, innovators + game changers; as an entrepreneur – I recommend becoming an Activator first. You’ll immediately join the SheEO community, start building relationships + get the support you need to grow your Venture.“
– Hannah Cree, SheEO Venture + Activator
