Adventure + Inspiration + Community.
She Ventures is more than an event series and platform, but a movement changing the narrative of what it means to be an adventurer, a woman, a leader, and a change maker. We are a testimony that women can be anything we want to be and that our voice matters and inspires others.
The face of adventure is changing and women are driving that change. Women make up almost 50 percent of outdoor participation and leading the way in terms of solo and adventure travel, yet we still lack visibility. Women's entrepreneurship rates have also increased by 10 percent on average globally, and we hope to share a new generation of role models for women around the world.
We knew there were amazing female founders, leaders, athletes, artists, change makers in the adventure, travel, wellness, and outdoor space globally working hard to get more women outside, on adventures, and living healthier lives, yet a forum did not exist to help bring them together and raise visibility to all that they do. We found women continue to want to find new ways of connecting with other women that have a shared passion for adventure, the outdoors, travel, wellness and doing good in our world. It was time for us to unite, bring our communities together, welcome new community, and host events to celebrate women that choose adventure as a way of life.
After all, we are Changing the Face of Adventure!
In 2017, sister company, Altitude Seven, merged with She Ventures.

REACH| THOUSANDS ACROSS NORTH AMERICA SINCE 2016
IMPACT| $8K RAISED FOR CHARITY. INSPIRATION. CONNECTION. VOICE
"I dream and work towards a day when women around the world own and run half of the businesses out there, where we are equally represented in every boardroom, where our strength in mountains, waves, dirt, flight and are equally celebrated as our counterparts, where what we earn is a reflection of our great work, where our daughters know they can grow up to be anything they want to be with a community to champion them to success in all fields. I also dream and work towards a world where violence against women is not tolerated, where education and health care is available to all for us to thrive. Women are the largest untapped resource on the planet. #GettingTo5050 means we change the world. "

Georgina Miranda-CEO of She Ventures | Adventurer, entrepreneur and activist.
Georgina was the founder and CEO of Altitude Seven, which has now merged with She Ventures. She's on a mission to inspire women around the world to #ChooseAdventure as a way of life after realizing the powerful and positive effects adventure brought her.
While she has an extensive corporate background and an ex-management consultant leading clients at Fortune 500 companies, her heart lies in adventure and it has led her to scale 6 of the 7 Summits (highest peak on each continent), including Mt. Everest and many other peaks around the world to raise awareness around gender-based violence. She is currently in the process of completing the Explorer Grand Slam, a feat that less than 20 women globally have completed.
Georgina credits the mountains and a life of adventure to shaping who she is today. Her mission now is to share the gift of adventure with others.
