SheEO Atlantic Canada: Female Leaders. Entrepreneurs. Creators - Our Movement
Join the Atlantic SheEO team for some refreshments and networking to learn how we as women are going to lead a new model for supporting female entrepreneurs.
SheEO’s Radical Generosity Initiative will dramatically transform how we fund and support female entrepreneurs. In major cities across Canada, one thousand women will contribute $1,000 each to create a pool of $1,000,000. The radically generous women will select 10 female-led ventures who will then collectively decide how to divide the million dollars.
- If women were financed to the same degree as male-led companies, we would create 6 million jobs in the next 5 years in North America.
- Women are a huge economic engine but are under financed. Only 4% of venture capital goes to women.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Halifax is one of the first cities in Canada to be a part of this movement. Women from all over Atlantic Canada will come together to contribute, grow their network and apply to be one of the first 10 ventures to benefit from the SheEO fund.
Why Atlantic Canada? Because we are ready for change, and the female entrepreneurial community is ready to make it happen. How? By collaborating with like-minded women all across the country to be an activator for change – real change!
