#8: How women are powering the next generation of female (and diverse) founders and why investing for impact makes sense with Shelley Kuipers

Shelley Kuipers is building the world she wants to live in. As an activist in business, entrepreneurship and investment, she is hell bent on defeating the status quo one project at a time, and replacing it with options that are more equitable, feminist and ecologically sustainable; revolutionary options that drive greater value for both business and consumer.

Shelley is a co-founder of IOVIA and Adventure Capital. She previously founded crowd-sourcing company, Chaordix and was a founding member of Stormworks. She is also co-founder of financial feminist platform, The51 and sustainable direct to consumer clothing brand Harris Kuipers, all in addition to championing the entrepreneurs she has chosen to invest in.

Shelley loves to travel for business and adventure but also questions the sustainability of it all - in fact she knows it isn't. When on a break Shelley finds herself revelling in nature with family and friends in Canada.
