Disruptive Funding For Global Female Entrepreneurs


SheEO founder Vicki Saunders (pictured below) is out to change the world for the better and her first step is to disrupt the traditional model of funding and investment for female entrepreneurs.

“In general, women were not at the table for designing 1.0 of this world, and we better be there for 2.0,” Saunders declared, and her design for this life involves a makeover of investment to include more women-led businesses.
