About this Event
Ever wondered what happens when women come together to practice #RadicalGenerosity and put their energy into working on the world’s ‘to-do list’?
Learn about how SheEO, a global community of radically generous women, is transforming the way we fund, support and celebrate women-led Ventures who are working on the World's To Do List.
What started as 500 women Activators funding 5 Canadian women-led Ventures in 2015 has grown to a global movement with 4,000+ Activators across four countries contributing $4M in support of 53 women-led Ventures.
Facilitated by Kingston-based SheEO Activator, Marina Darling, this panel will feature stories about how the power of the SheEO network and support is stimulating the growth and success of women-led ventures.
SheEO is a global community of radically generous women supporting women-led Ventures working on the World’s To Do List
SheEO's goal is to reach 1 million Activators, 10,000 women-led Ventures and a $1B perpetual fund to support women for generations to come.
