What is a Venture?
Ventures who apply to SheEO are majority women-owned, women-led, revenue-generating (at least $50K up to ~$2M in revenue at the time of application) with export potential and able to answer how they are creating a better world.
We are sector and structure-agnostic. Ventures currently come from a wide range of sectors including: wellness, AI, education, food sustainability, waste reduction, energy efficiency, inclusion, and biotech innovation. Currently, our Founders range in age from 22-70+ years old. We have funded charities (with strong revenue models) and for-profit companies to date.
Can I be both an Activator and a Venture?
Yes! We’ve had Activators apply as Ventures and Ventures join as Activators. You can absolutely be part of the community in both capacities and at the same time.
Many Activators and Ventures have found mentors, new clients, business partners and lifelong friends through the community.
As you may know, the Activators’ contributions are then pooled together and then loaned out in the form of 0%-interest loans to women-led Ventures whom the Activators help select.
