Our application process is straightforward.

Ventures introduce themselves to the network by answering 12 key questions about their business. No attachments, no pitch decks, no jargon.  Those selected as Semi-Finalists will be asked to validate their financials, and submit a one minute video about their business.

Our criteria is simple.

1. Are you majority women-owned (51%+) and majority women-led? For SheEO, this means that the senior leadership role of CEO/ President is held by a woman.

2. At the time of application, have you generated between $50K – $2M (in the currency of the region for which you are applying) in revenue since January 2018?

3. Is your Venture registered as a legal entity in the region for which you are applying?

4. Does your Venture represent a new mindset, new model or new solution for a better world?

Activators select Ventures with the following in mind:

1. Would you buy or refer this product or service?

2. Does the entrepreneur have what it takes to lead this company?

3. Do you think this business is creating a better world (is it a new mindset, new model or new solution in how they run their business or in their product and service)?

4. Is the business exporting to other countries or does it have export potential?
