Invest In Women: Future of Work & Education

These new funding opportunities are part of a National Tour for women-led innovation companies, which comes at a time when female founders receive less than 5 percent of all venture capital.

Five women-led companies will be selected to pitch their ventures in each city. The winners will receive investments of up to $250,000. 

“We’re excited to now partner with Chloe Capital to invest in women entrepreneurs,” said Jessica Haselton, director of program-related investments, ECMC Foundation. “This Movement aligns perfectly with ECMC Foundation’s mission to inspire and facilitate improvements that affect educational outcomes–especially among underserved populations.”

Last year the Foundation began making program-related investments in companies aiming to improve educational outcomes and economic mobility among students from underserved backgrounds. ECMC Foundation provides flexible, risk capital to early-stage ventures and entrepreneurs through various programs which focus on innovation in postsecondary education.

In November 2017, Chloe Capital set out on a National Tour to invest in the most promising women-led innovation companies. Today, the New York-based VC firm is being recognized as a Movement that empowers approximately 11,000 founders, investors and innovation supporters.

“In collaboration with ECMC Foundation we’re excited to announce the expansion of our Movement to LA, New Orleans and Charlotte,” said Kathryn Cartini, partner, Chloe Capital.

“We’re moving capital in each city we visit, and empowering women leaders with each step we take,” added Elisa Miller-Out, partner, Chloe Capital.

Companies with creative innovations and ideas in Education Innovation, College Success, Career Readiness and Workforce Transformation are encouraged to apply for funding at ChloeCapital.com/funding. Companies do not need to be located in Los Angeles to pitch or receive investments. In addition to receiving funding from ECMC Foundation and Chloe Capital, founders will gain visibility and connections to top-tier investors.
