What is a Venture?

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: wellnessAIeducationfood sustainabilitywaste reductionenergy efficiencyinclusion, 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.

Support from Hundreds of Radically Generous Women

We have rethought and redesigned an innovation ecosystem to support women-led Ventures on their own terms. We know that money is important as well as access to networks, customers, advice, and export markets. You can be part of a global network of radically generous women.

What I love about being a Venture

“Skipper Otto’s supplied the fish for the SheEO Summit and Gala, and my goal was to raise $3000 in new membership that night. I ended up blowing through my target by a long shot – raising over $14,000 from the incredible support and radical generosity of the Activators in the room!”

“I feel more confident as a leader in my community and as a business woman.”

“Whatever your venture needs, you’ll find it within this network – just ask. Connections, access to new markets, advice and support on pricing, exporting, branding, decision-making, hiring…..it’s all here. Women within this network have the expertise and experience -and the desire to have your venture succeed. Its inspiring, empowering, energizing and still very humbling.”
