SheEO is transforming how we finance, support and celebrate women-led ventures that are creating a better world. Are you IN?
SheEO is a disruptive economic model created by Vicki Saunders of SheEO.World designed to actively support a small number of women-led ventures with no-interest loans.
Theresa Gattung is behind the launch of SheEO in New Zealand, the first time it has been launched outside the US and Canada.
How does it work?
You can be an Activator or a Venture or both!
Basically, 500 female Activators in NZ, through an act of radical generosity, contribute $1,100 each ($1,000 invested to create a perpetual fund and $100 as a program fee) to create a funding pool of $500,000. I’m in! Find out more about becoming an Activator.
The second part of the model is about the Ventures.
The 500 Activators vote to select the top 5 Ventures out of all those that have applied. The money is then loaned out at no interest to those ventures chosen and paid back over a five year period. Selected Ventures not only get the funding, but access to mentoring, women’s networks, buying power and expertise to grow their business.
Apply as a Venture NOW!
It would be fantastic to have a Nelson Tasman business selected as a Venture, but you’ll need to get in quickly! Applications close on 12 January 2018.
To apply as a Venture is simple, just answer 12 questions online.
The Top five Ventures will be announced in April 2018.
