BuffaloInno: Need startup cash? Here are some doors to knock in Buffalo

By Dan Miner – Reporter, BuffaloInno

From the first idea to pre-seed. From seed to scale. Tech startups often need outside funding to support their endgame goals.

These days, Buffalo’s emergent technology scene has many more serious (as in, full-time) startup entrepreneurs who think their ideas can become the next big business in town.

Just as there are more startups themselves, the investment scene is also reshuffling around the funding opportunities that exist here.

Simply put, there are a lot more investors in town than 10 years ago. Sorting out where to go, and whom to pitch, can be confusing.

Here are some options:

BuffaloInno: The ShearShare investment thesis, according to Chloe Capital partner Kathryn Cartini

By Dan Miner – Reporter, BuffaloInno

ShearShare moved from Dallas to Buffalo after winning a $500,000 investment in October’s 43North competition.

The startup, led by co-founders Tye and Courtney Caldwell, is a gig-economy take on the beauty industry – using software to match independent contractors with empty chairs at salons and barber shops.

The company already has hired a handful of employees in Buffalo who will work from the new home base at the 43North incubator in Seneca One Tower. And it made news recently when it closed a $2.3 million bridge round of funding that will support sales, marketing and engineering efforts this year.

The round was led by Atlanta-based Fearless Fund and included contributions from local angel investors Jack Greco and Wayne and Mary Bacon; Empire State Development Corp.’s New York Ventures Fund; Portfolia’s FemTech II Fund; and Hearst Corp.’s Level Up Ventures.

Another notable investor is venture capital firm Chloe Capital, based in Ithaca. Chloe Capital has been active in hosting events throughout central and western New York. ShearShare is the first investment in that footprint.

Chloe Capital co-founder and partner Kathryn Cartini spoke with Business First about that investment.

How did the ShearShare investment come together?
We first set our sights on ShearShare at 43North (in October). I was one of the pre-qualifying judges, and I got to meet some new investors and reconnect with some old friends.

We watched ShearShare win $500,000. It was clear they were onto something and that other investors were interested.

I said, ‘Hey, everyone, they have a small bridge round open. I will collect all the materials, do the due diligence and put this together. Let me know what you need, but we’d love for you to entertain investing in this company, too.’ That’s what we did through the holidays.

Why do you like ShearShare as an investment?
We liked them initially because of their specific industry and their take on the gig economy. In this post-Covid era, you have a lot of businesses that have struggled and a lot of people who are trying to make a living (as independent contractors). It’s not only about making a living anymore, it’s about believing in what you’re doing and pursuing your passion.

The gig or sharing economy is something like a $1.5 trillion market in the next couple of years, and the beauty and barber market is a huge chunk of that addressable market. When I look at the opportunity they have, that’s what got us excited at Chloe Capital.

We went in and looked at the technology, because with a company at this early stage, sometimes they haven’t built (meaningful technology yet). But ShearShare has an entire app and platform. They have patents. They are validated. They are in the market and generating revenue in multiple states.

Finally, they have a way to supply insurance in the beauty and barbering industry.

What is your take on the founders?
First of all, they are a pleasure. They are knowledgeable and kind and hardworking. They are beautiful people, inside and out. I have enjoyed every single interaction with them, getting to experience their hustle and their heart. We were just in Austin for the South by Southwest conference. They’re from that area and we got to be in the audience as Courtney gave a presentation, and then to hang out with them and continue building that relationship.

You’re already an investor. Why is it important to continue nurturing that relationship?
It’s important to us that the relationship between the investors and the founders actually means something. We consider everything a partnership because our success depends on their success. We want to be with the company as they continue their journeys, and if they raise more money, we want to be able to invest in them.

The round included quite the roster of investors, both from a local and national perspective.
Hearst’s Level Up fund is a new fund dedicated to Black and Latina founders, and they became one of the very first investors. Our friends at Portfolia – which helped invent funding for underrepresented founders – came in as well. Everyone in town knows Jack Greco, who is an investor in Chloe Capital, and when we said, ‘We love ShearShare,’ he said, ‘I like them and I’m in on that, too.’ So now he’s invested twice. Wayne and Mary Bacon have been great. They were on the call with the other investors and they were able not only to come in on the cap table but to teach them more about this process and pay it forward.

Finally, ESD’s NY Ventures Fund pushed it across the finish line. That’s a big one. I’ve never seen them come into a round this early.

Talk to me about Chloe Capital’s mission.
As women in the sales, fundraising and technology industries, we have to figure out how to get involved in relationships with founders who are unique to us, or (with whom we have) commonalities. In the case of ShearShare, we found those commonalities. When Courtney was speaking on the stage at South by Southwest, we were in the audience as cheerleaders for her. And then we all met up afterward for hugs and strategy.

Chloe Capital is a venture capital firm that invests in women-led tech companies around the world, and we also partner with universities and corporate innovators to help catalyze capital for underrepresented founders. Our Invest in Women tour has been a huge success. To date, Chloe Capital has invested in 19 early-stage, women-led technology companies.

Tompkins Weekly: Chloe Capital partners with Cornell University to help climate tech entrepreneurs

By Jessica Wickham, Tompkins Weekly

In October, Chloe Capital, a seed-stage venture capital firm that invests in women-led innovation companies, announced its partnership with Cornell University and NYSERDA to help climate tech innovators “launch and advance solutions to the world’s climate crisis,” according to a recent release.

The result of the partnership is a program called Diversity In ClimateTech, and its business accelerator was held Oct. 27. At the accelerator, held in Ithaca, five women-led climate tech companies were selected, based on their potential impact, to pitch and secure business deals, with over $500,000 in investments being offered.

“Out of 300-plus applicants that met the program criteria, the five finalists selected were ones that showed both experience and early success in the niche market where their solution is needed,” said Kathryn Cartini, Chloe Capital co-founder and partner, in the release.

Dorrit Lowsen, co-founder of Change Finance, received a $250,000 investment. Her company produces “performance-oriented investment products that seek to promote a more just and sustainable world,” according to the release.

SaLisa Berrien, founder and CEO of COI Energy, received a $200,000 investment.

“COI Energy is changing the face of energy with its digital energy management that detects and eliminates energy waste in buildings and repurposes that waste for good,” she said in the release. “We use machine learning and artificial intelligence to predict energy behaviors and make corrections to avoid waste.”

While Diversity In ClimateTech only began earlier this year, Chloe Capital and Cornell’s work in the climate tech space goes way back. Elisa Miller-Out, Chloe Capital co-founder and managing partner, said that Chloe Capital staff members have been “researching, actively mentoring, participating in accelerators, incubators, competitions, in the climate tech space for nearly a decade now.”

“We’ve been doing that work in our careers even prior to Chloe Capital,” she said. “And so, it was [a] natural fit for us to leverage those relationships that we’ve been building for years, with Cornell, with NYSERDA, through all the programming that they’ve done across New York state and across the Southern Tier where this program is based. It was a natural fit for us to then, with Chloe Capital, put this together to do a diversity and climate tech program.”

At Cornell, the feeling is mutual, as Andrea Katherine Ippolito, director of Women Engineers Cornell (W.E. Cornell), explained. Katherine Ippolito is also the founder of SimpliFed, a company focused on infant feeding, both chestfeeding and formula feeding. W.E. Cornell is a program out of the Center for Regional Economic Advancement at Cornell University (CREA).

“W.E. Cornell’s goal is to create an on-ramp for STEM women to pursue entrepreneurship,” she said. “And so, the beginning of this program is a climate-tech-focused track of the W.E. Cornell program, where we go through an ideation process with them, we arm them with resources, we teach them and educate them on how to start your own company and test assumptions surrounding who’s your customer, what they care about and what your revenue model looks like.”

For Katherine Ippolito and Miller-Out, the importance of the Diversity In ClimateTech program is vast.

“We are in a climate crisis in the world right now,” Katherine Ippolito said. “And when you look at the innovation in climate technology, especially some of the newer entrants into this space, especially on the startup side, they are, for the most part, being run by males. And if we are going to tackle the climate crisis that we are in right now, we need to better take advantage of half our population and support them in their entrepreneurial journey to create new innovations and implement those new innovations to make an impact to tackle the crisis we’re facing.”

Katherine Ippolito and Miller-Out both spoke highly of this year’s investment winners. Miller-Out highlighted Berrien, who has already seen tremendous growth in her company despite it being relatively new.

“Seeing Black female founders with millions in contracts, millions in revenue, millions in funding is a whole new world because we’re coming from a place where Black female founders, in the data, in the investment world have received historically less than .1% of the funding and access to capital,” Miller-Out said. “So, it’s really exciting to see what can happen when you have a founder who has access to capital and resources and then is making full use of that and really scaling a huge company that’s going to be a tremendous force in both our region as well as the world moving forward.”

Miller-Out said that beyond the individual benefit for the entrepreneurs in the Diversity In ClimateTech program and the worldwide benefit of fighting climate change, there’s another big plus to this new program — creating role models.

“Seeing all those role models and mentorship is a key part of the Chloe Capital movement and how we build this ecosystem for underrepresented founders, for women, for nonbinary, for BIPOC founders,” Miller-Out said. “Part of how we build that is by these role models and women lifting other women up through this process.”

Now that the business accelerator is over, the next step in the Diversity In ClimateTech is to connect the selected companies with resources in their community like vendors “and embedding these companies more deeply in our community in different ways that are really meaningful to everyone and that helps with the economic development of the region,” Miller-Out said.

The selected applicants in Diversity In ClimateTech have all made great progress with their businesses since starting, which Katherine Ippolito is indicative of a shift in the common narrative regarding investing in female founders.

“There’s this unfortunate narrative that sometimes out there [that] investing in female founders is impact investing or philanthropic in nature,” she said. “Investing in female founders, those that are making an impact, is what’s good for business. And so, I would say that we’re seeing tremendous interest in the space in those that are making incredible impact and those that are making profit in the process. You can do good while also doing well, from a business standpoint, as well. And that’s the merger of what we’re really trying to accomplish.”

Though challenges caused by the pandemic continue for some business owners, generally speaking, Katherine Ippolito said that the entrepreneurial ecosystem is “thriving” right now. She said she hopes to see more entrepreneurs coming to the county thanks to the Diversity In ClimateTech and other similar programs.

“With the recent announcement of what is happening with Ithaca being a pioneer in the United States with getting to carbon neutrality, and especially with our building space, that’s attracting a lot of attention from elsewhere across the country to Ithaca,” she said. “Ithaca and Tompkins County is open for business for entrepreneurs and innovators, especially diverse innovators. We have such a supportive community here, and come innovate here because we have a platform to allow you to go a lot further faster.”

Still, Katherine Ippolito recognizes that many women are struggling due to “playing double duty,” meaning having full-time jobs and being expected to be the main caretakers.

“We’re having the great resignation happen across the United States because we don’t have access to child care and these types of things,” she said. “So, my whole standpoint on this is that if we can get better social infrastructure, such as universal child care support, paid parental leave, we can better retain women that want to be retained, we can better retain them in the workforce, and this also opens up opportunity for them to be able to innovate and lead companies.”

Chloe Capital and W.E. Cornell continue to work to support women entrepreneurs through a variety of services, investments and programs.

Workshops at these events will be hosted by different coaches with backgrounds in productivity, diversity and inclusion, finance and others.

The online events will then lead up to a 48-hour in-person program in Pittsburgh where five high-growth tech companies with women executives will participate in a fundraising effort aimed at connecting underrepresented founders to investors and other industry leaders. Upon the program’s completion, Chloe Capital will make at lease once investment in a company that is located in or is willing to relocate to Allegheny or Westmoreland counties.

With the face of venture capital and entrepreneurship changing, this collaboration is a great example of how the public and private sectors can work together to do well by doing good.”

Chloe Capital said that participants in its programs tend to on average raise $2 million in funding within a year of participation.

“We’re committed to addressing inequality, quality of life and economic development in Pittsburgh, and we’re ready to showcase our region’s talent, resources and opportunities with Chloe Capital’s global network,” Nadyli Nuñez, executive director at Ascender, said in the release. “Invest In Women x Pittsburgh is a win for underrepresented founders, investors around the world, and our community.”

Applications for seed- to Series A-funded women-led technology companies to enroll in the program are now open. Information sessions about the program will be held in January and February, with applications closing on Feb. 11.

Women Entrepreneurs Receive Venture Capital Funding to Address Climate Crisis

Diversity In ClimateTech is a new program in partnership with Chloe Capital and Cornell University, and supported by the NYS Energy Research & Development Authority (NYSERDA). 

[RELEASE] Nov. 23, 2021 – New York, NY – Chloe Capital and Cornell University are helping climate tech innovators launch and advance solutions to the world’s climate crisis. During the recent Diversity In ClimateTech (https://chloecapital.com/climatetech) business accelerator, five women-led climate tech companies were selected, based on their potential impact, to pitch and secure business deals.

The accelerator, which convened in Ithaca, NY, was designed to connect the women entrepreneurs with investors. Over $500,000 in investments were offered by Chloe Capital to select underrepresented female founders who are projected to be leaders in the growing sustainable and clean technology industries.

“Something interesting we noticed when we were screening applicants for this program was the market trends. For one, the program applicants are raising more funds, and two, they’re generating more sales,” said Kathryn Cartini, Chloe Capital co-founder and partner. “These metrics indicate that diverse founders in the climate tech sector are being recognized by investors as, what we like to call, ‘high-quality deal flow’. Out of 300+ applicants that met the program criteria, the five finalists selected were ones that showed both experience and early success in the niche market where their solution is needed,” added Cartini.

Dorrit Lowsen, Co-founder of Change Finance, a company that produces performance-oriented investment products that seek to promote a more just and sustainable world, was a recipient of a $250,000 investment.

Lowsen understands first-hand the pressure to quickly address climate and clean energy technologies as she was a member of the domestic energy and environmental policy committee in Beijing during the preparation for the Paris Climate Agreement. Lowsen shared, “We believe investing for good can profit people, planet, and investors–and that idea permeates our culture from the rigorous, rules-based methodology that underpins our investment products, to the intentionality we bring to our shareholder advocacy.”

Additionally, SaLisa Berrien, Founder and CEO, COI Energy was recognized with a $200,000 investment. Berrien has more than two decades of energy experience focused on energy efficiency, smart grid optimization, and big data analytics. She describes herself as, “a climate tech professional that is passionate about leaving the space she occupies better than she found it.” Berrien explains that, “COI Energy is changing the face of energy with its digital energy management that detects and eliminates energy waste in buildings and repurposes that waste for good. We use machine learning and artificial intelligence to predict energy behaviors and make corrections to avoid waste.”

Diversity In ClimateTech launched in early 2021, recruits, educates, inspires and supports the growth of companies led by Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) and women founders on the forefront of climate tech innovation. Founders with innovations that reduce greenhouse gas emissions, support the decarbonization of the economy, and broadly reduce energy consumption were recruited to participate in the accelerator.

“Through the Diversity in ClimateTech program, together, we aim to help create a more diverse and inclusive environment for women founders who are changing the world through climate tech,” said Elisa Miller-Out, Chloe Capital co-founder and managing partner.

Chloe Capital and Cornell University manage the Diversity in ClimateTech program with support from New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). Through this partnership, founders at the idea or pre-seed stage also receive support for their companies and are provided with an array of resources in New York’s clean energy ecosystem within the Southern Tier, to help them progress.

“The Diversity in ClimateTech business accelerator and fundraising program is helping to fuel the continued growth of the climate tech industry in New York’s Southern Tier,” said Katie MacDonald, NYSERDA’s Director, Technology to Market. “Congratulations to all of these companies that are bringing diverse entrepreneurial ideas to the region, where they can take advantage of New York State’s unmatched clean energy assets and infrastructure.”
