Quick Press Tips from Vicki + Hannah

You can’t just
add women
+ stir

“In order to get to the new solutions for the world’s most pressing social issues; we need to shed our ‘winner takes all culture’ that has resulted in 5 men having the same wealth as half the planet! 51% of the population are women, yet we receive 2.2% of the capital. This is statistically impossible without massive bias designed into our systems and structures.”

-Vicki Saunders, Founder of SheEO

To go deeper:

  •  

You may get a lot of questions on the model, it’s different.  Women + non-binary folks have gifted their money, time + resources to fund women + non-binary people like you. 

Share your story + your experience. The model + how it works is on the website or do an intro to the Storytelling team to SheEO.

Language: when you are creating new models, you sometimes need new language to explain what you are doing.

    • Activators: radically generous women + non-binary folks of all ages + stages + backgrounds who activate themselves to transform systems. Gifting their capital, buying power, connections + expertise.
    • Ventures: Women + non-binary led + owned Ventures who are working on the World’s To-Do List (United Nations Sustainable Goals) 
    • Language is also changing when it comes to gender, currently we communicate this with using women and non-binary people or folks.  As such, we do not use female in any of our communications.
  • We invite you to learn more about SheEO Credo and our Values + Practices.

SheEO Story

assets-11

Launched in 2015 in Canada and now also in the US, Australia, New Zealand and UK, this visionary model is emerging as a leading global innovation that is totally unique. Rather than trying to fit women into the existing models and systems and level the playing field, we are creating an entirely new field.

SheEO pushes the reset button on how to support women on their own terms. We focus on bringing out the best of women by being radically generous to one another. 

The model brings together women from all different backgrounds + ages, called Activators who contribute to a Perpetual Fund that is loaned out at zero percent interest to women-led Ventures who are working on the World’s To-Do List, who are selected by the Activators. 

All Ventures are revenue generating with export potential + are creating a better world through their business model. The loans are paid back over five years and then loaned out again, creating a Perpetual Fund which we will pass on to our daughters, nieces and granddaughters. 

The SheEO network is radically generous, there are thousands of women who share their expertise, networks + connections. 

Women working on the World’s To-Do List are creating the socially + environmentally sustainable models of the future.
