Sheeo  /  What is it?

SheEO mentors, guides and accelerates the next generation of women-led ventures on their own terms.

Women-led ventures experience a program designed to surface clarity around the impact they want to have in the world. We believe that the most powerful leaders are ones who know what they want, know what they are good at and know what they need to surround themselves with to build a great team.

The vision for SheEO is to build a  network of “next generation” of creators, makers and entrepreneurs supported by and funded by successful women and men who recognize the need for new models, new mindsets and new solutions to build a better world.

 

Why Sheeo?  /  A message from the founding Sheeo

We need to create a support system that mentors, guides and accelerates the next generation of women-led ventures on their own terms.

Ten years ago I created the SheEO competition which was a $250,000 prize for the best business idea by a young woman under 30. It was a response to the fact that I only had 4 funding applications from women out of over 300 applications to my venture fund. I wanted to do something about that number so I got Melinda Gates and 4 other women to write a cheque for $50,000 and we had a Who’s Who list of amazing Canadian women on our Advisory Board.

Today, the rise of the female entrepreneur is here!

Corporations like Coca-Cola and Goldman Sachs are flooding into the ‘women’ marketplace. There is a pileup of data showcasing women’s significant contribution to economies: women are more capital efficient; women reinvest 90 cents of every additional dollar of income on human resources (ed’n, health…).

But this network needs strong role models who walk the walk of boldness, passion, power and the belief that anything is possible.

It is time for the re-birth of SheEO!

SheEO Program

SheEO is a program for ten women-led ventures designed to surface clarity around the impact you want to have in the world. We believe that the most powerful leaders are ones who know what they want, know what they are good at and know what they need to surround themselves with to build a great team.

Most programs create curriculum that follows a packaged approach to business. Day One = Financials. Day Two = Legal. Day Three = Marketing, PR. You won’t find that approach at SheEO. We mentor and guide young entrepreneurs on their own terms. We go deep with each person to understand who you are and what you want to create in the world. We challenge your assumptions, continuously. Our performanced-based approach creates a significant peer network and circle of excellence that will keep you at the top of your game, until you are not, and then the network will support you to get back on track.

There is no single success model out there. There are no 7-steps to greatness. Look around you at this world that we have created. It’s pretty clear that we haven’t figured out much when we create businesses where 1 out of 5 employees are highly engaged, where we have rampant absenteeism and where we fail to look after our communities and make decisions beyond 1 or 2 quarters. Most people are stressed out, exhausted, and running non-stop to catch up to …what?

We don’t believe in 24/7. We believe you can achieve greatness on your own terms, in a way that can help you thrive personally and professionally. One that features balance and wellness and financial success.

We also know that trying to fit yourself into someone else’s model is a recipe for disaster so we help you to notice when you are doing that and build up strategies to get yourself out of limited thinking and following the herd.

And finally we believe in self-selection. You found us and showed up at SheEO because you wanted to. Because you want another way. Because you are ready. Welcome!
