On Tuesday, September 7th, 2016, we welcomed Vicki Saunders to the podium at the Women of Influence Evening series to discuss her career as an entrepreneur and how she’s changing the game for female entrepreneurs everywhere.

In 2013, Vicki launched SheEO, a global collaboration of female entrepreneurs and radically generous women who engage in a new economic and social model that combines the best of crowdfunding, coaching, buying power and networks that leverages not just the wisdom of the crowd, but its heart.

Check out some of the key takeaways from the keynote address:

  • How #radicalgenerosity began: Vicki spoke about creating a venture capital model that attracted women, with the hopes that “if we do this for five years we will have a perpetual fund for our daughters and granddaughters.”
  • On living in a world created for men: “I’m not interested in leveling the playing field; I want to create a new field.”
  • On the importance of supporting female entrepreneurs: “How would you act differently, dream differently, if every time you asked for help, someone was there to lend a hand?”
