But there’s a huge problem. Ambitious young women have a hard time finding a community of like-minded peers in male-dominated industries, leading to fewer opportunities to break into the job market and assume leadership roles. Gen She aims to solve this by supporting you at every step of your career by giving you access to a network of 16k+ professional women, career opportunities, mentorship, events, and funding.

how

works

it

We strategically cultivate talent to fuel big ideas.

Our goal is to build out the female talent pipeline from students to early founders and then be their first backers.

We instill career readiness and an entrepreneurial spirit through localized chapters at high school and college campuses.

Back the Best

Those inspired to start their own companies will gain access to exclusive events, resources, and networking opportunities. They will also be able to tap into our talent pipeline to help them unlock rapid growth at a time when they have little resources and time. We will then invest in their ideas and work hand-in-hand to build out the future with them.

NOTE

FOUNDER

the

As the only female on my team in my first big tech internship, I struggled to make critical decisions about the next steps of my career. I craved familiarity and guidance from other career-driven women in the same position as me. Without this built-in support, it was difficult to justify staying at this company.

Diverse company culture is not only good for business, but it is also becoming essential for attracting the best talent. To stay competitive, companies must provide that culture from the beginning and feel empowered to do so without worrying about budget or resource constraints.

Moreover, “young” and “female” are not limitations but rather assets for teams that want to stay innovative and relevant. They are a powerful group of digital natives, driven by what is right and have a passion for making change happen. However, the traditional world of tech and venture capital often overlooks and underestimates this cohort. Women hold greater than 50% of purchasing power, while the newest startups’ futures rely on the incoming generation liking their product. Ultimately, teams need to reflect the diversity of the customer base they serve to make better product decisions.

and it

MAKES

BUSINESS

SENSE .

Teams with greater diversity improve their bottom line by 20%. But, you can’t think about diversity after you grow and scale your startup to hundreds of people. It’s too late. Diverse culture starts from the beginning, from founding teams and their leadership. We need more women starting and leading companies, so companies are diverse from day one.

By providing top female talent a supportive community to lean on and then giving companies easy access to this talent earlier on in their journey, we can unlock the potential of every ambitious young woman in the world and build the foundation of the leading companies of tomorrow.

our story

Let’s look back on what we have accomplished so far.

In 2019, Generation She was founded under the name She Leads to host our first event, an Entrepreneurship Makeathon at Snap HQ. We have since evolved into Generation She and we’re working on becoming more impactful and transformative than ever before.
