SheWorx is the leading global platform empowering 20,000+ female entrepreneurs to build and scale successful companies. SheWorx is driving the movement for gender parity in entrepreneurship and focuses on closing the funding gap through collaboration, not competition. Through global roundtables and summits, SheWorx democratizes access to top mentors and investors so it is available to any woman serious about building a high-growth company.
SheWorx arose from a profound need to empower women in a 94% male dominated investment landscape. Lisa Wang, SheWorx Founder & CEO, drew upon her own challenges fundraising for her startup, and sought to help women draw upon their existing strengths and develop the access and skills to face said challenges head on. This mentality gave rise to SheWorx and our core values called: the “Triple A values”: Altruism, Ambition, and Action” — encouraging an inclusive community where everyone’s voice is heard. To that end, Lisa emphasizes “enoughness” rather than perfection, encouraging women to be their best selves without the trappings of living up to impossible expectations.
Lisa Wang is a former 4x National Champion & Hall of Fame gymnast turned serial entrepreneur. She is an inductee into the Forbes 30 Under 30 Class of 2018 in Venture Capital, and named two years in a row as CIO Magazine's Top 20 Female Entrepreneurs to watch in 2017 and 2018.
