SHEowns official certification mark logo for woman-owned and gender equal companies and brands


Certifying that 
 50+%  of the people who own or co-own a company are women


The SHEowns mark is designed to recognize and highlight companies that are equally or majority owned by women.

Even though ~49% of all businesses in the United States are either majority owned  or equally co-owned by women, those businesses only see ~4% of revenues and hire ~8% of employees. The good news is that by supporting those ~49% of businesses, we can increase those percentages and, it is estimated, increase the global GDP  by approximately $12 trillion a year.

People are looking to contribute to that growth by supporting woman-owned businesses. Having that information at point of sale or wherever consumers interact with your brand is more important than ever. Getting Certified SHEowns allows companies to speak to belief-driven buyers in an easily recognizable and verified form - making it easy for people to identify and support businesses owned by women, and ultimately impact the global economy.

That is why we created the SHEowns mark
