I am proud to be a SheEO Activator in New Zealand supporting female entrepreneurs. A huge Congrats to Vicki Saunders - Founder of SheEO and her team, and Theresa Gattung, Chris Woodwiss and everyone else involved.
If you live in New Zealand and want to become an Activator please go to the NZ portal here https://sheeo.world/activators/signup/new-zealand/
Below is some information on SheEO taken directly from the SheEO website https://sheeo.world/about-us/
SheEO is a leading global innovation in the female entrepreneur marketplace. Our radical new model to finance, support and celebrate female entrepreneurs has received global attention by capturing the hearts and minds of women around the world. Over 150 regions from Asia-Pacific to Latin America to Europe and North America have applied to replicate the model in two short years since we launched.
Our model brings together 500 women (we call them Activators) in each cohort, who contribute $1100 each as an Act of Radical Generosity. The money is pooled together and loaned out at low interest to 5 women-led Ventures selected by the Activators. All Ventures are revenue generating with export potential and creating a better world through their business model or their product and service.
Loans are paid back into the fund over 5 years and then loaned out again, which creates a perpetual fund that we will pass on to our daughters, granddaughters and our nieces.
The 500 women become the de-facto ‘team’ of the 5 selected ventures bringing their buying power as early customers, their expertise and advice and their vast networks to help grow the businesses.
With a guided development program (monthly coaching) added in, the Ventures are deeply supported to accelerate their success in an environment of radical generosity, designed by women for women.
Activators are corporate executives, successful entrepreneurs, emerging women leaders, students, mothers, grandmothers, daughters ranging in age from 14 – 92. Our diversity of age, stage, culture and experience makes SheEO a highly coveted and unique community.
Competition now closed.

Witness the match of the century! Academy Award winner Emma Stone and Academy Award nominee Steve Carell star in Battle of the Sexes, opening in New Zealand cinemas September 28th.
Based on an incredible true story of the most famous tennis match in history, Battle of the Sexes explores the legendary feud between women’s World #1 Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and former men’s World #1 and serial hustler Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell). Riggs claiming that he will ‘put the show back in chauvinism’, announces a $100,000 open challenge to any woman that could beat him, an outrageous and extravagant on-court rivalry was ignited that led to one of the most watched sporting events of all time.
Together, Billie Jean and Bobby served up a spectacle that resonated beyond the tennis court, making a pivotal case in the fight for equality and sparking discussions in bedrooms and boardrooms that continue to reverberate today.
