SheEO is a global community of radically generous women transforming how we fund and support women-led Ventures working on the World’s To-Do List. The model brings together 500 women (called Activators) in each cohort, who contribute $1100 each as an Act of Radical Generosity. The money is then pooled together and loaned out at 0% interest to five women-led Ventures selected by the Activators. The loans are paid back over five years and then loaned out again, creating a perpetual fund to be passed on to our daughters and granddaughters. Since launching in 2015, 4,000 SheEO Activators have collectively loaned out $4M in support of 53 women-led Ventures.
