“When I turned 50 I lost my mind and stopped caring what others thought. Instead, I thought – what if I could completely reinvent this funding model?”
I gave my ValentinesDay love to global founder of SheEO™ Vicki Saunders, who last Friday February 14 brought together 50 female investors who are collectively moving capital to radically transform how we finance and support female entrepreneurs building new business models and startup solutions to tackle the world’s to-do list.
A 2019 Forbes report based on Crunchbase data showed that year on year since 2017, less than 3% of traditional venturecapital funds and less than 4% of business bank loans went to companies led by femalefounders.
SheEO™ is changing that.
Since launching in 2015, 5500 female investors (Activators) in 5 countries have collectively loaned out $4 million to support 52 women-led Ventures. Our goal is to reach 1 million women Activators to create a $1B perpetual fund which will support 10,000 female-led Ventures per year for generations to come.
