Future of Work & Education
Chloe Capital / ECMC Foundation

Women-led companies with creative innovations and ideas that help students facing challenges in postsecondary education should apply for funding opportunities. Companies do not need to be located within tour cities to pitch or receive investments. Themes for all three ECMC Foundation pop-up accelerators include:

    • Education Innovation
    • College Success
    • Career Readiness
    • Workforce Transformation

Even if your company does not fit these specific themes — we want to hear from you! Apply now and we’ll keep you posted as we continue to launch new funding opportunities for early-stage, women-led innovation companies.

The screening process for each city begins on the following dates:

  • LA – View Investments!
  • NOLA – View Investments!
  • CLT – Closed.

Applications received after these dates will be shared with ECMC Foundation, and considered for the future Chloe Capital programs. When you apply, you will be added to our mailing list, and receive notifications as soon as new funding opportunities become available.

Companies can apply from anywhere in the U.S. and do not need to relocate. A member of each team does need to participate in one of the programs to be considered for funding. Programs include a private investor dinner the evening prior a workshop and live pitch event. Participate selection is at the discretion of the investment committee. All travel and hotel expenses if applicable will be covered for the founders.

Chloe Capital makes equity / debt investments in for-profit companies. Non-profit companies with sustainable business models will be considered for additional opportunities by ECMC Foundation.

Companies that apply should have at least one leader on the team who identifies as female. This person must hold at least 20% ownership in the company to be considered women-led. The investment committee is consciously inclusive of other types of diversity across the team as well.

Applicant screening is conducted on a rolling basis ~3 months prior to each program. Chloe Capital will aim to connect with all who apply for funding. Please be patient with us. We receive over 100 applications a week.

A handful of companies will be selected to undergo Chloe Capital’s due diligence process. Once tapped on the shoulder, founders will have a specific amount of time (typically 2 weeks or less) to submit standard supporting materials including 3-year financials, cap table, open term sheets and IP/trademark documents.

Chloe Capital’s Due Diligence Committee will review all materials thoroughly, as will members of ECMC Foundation’s investment team. All parties may schedule interviews, and demos  with founders to learn more. Based on these communications and research, five companies will be chosen to participate in each program. At least one company from each program will receive funding.

A Chloe Capital representative will connect with each founder who submitted supporting materials after the due diligence process is complete. Applicants who do not hear from us directly are still under consideration for future  programs. At any time, applicants can send progress reports or investor newsletters to

At least one company from each program will be selected to receive funding. Chloe Capital will invest $100,000 during each program, and ECMC Foundation will invest up to $150,000! In addition to these investments, several active investors will be participating in each program. We honor a collaborative due diligence and investing process. Supporting materials are shared with potential co-investors prior to each program. All investors are given the opportunity to make independent investments and co-investments in participating companies. Neither Chloe Capital, nor ECMC Foundation accepts referral fees for making these connections.

Chloe Capital is popping up everywhere!

and we’re moving capital in each city we visit.

Chloe Capital is more than a VC firm – we’re a Movement. Despite recent progress, only 2% of women-led companies receive venture capital in the U.S. Yet companies with women leaders statistically perform better and produce greater returns for investors. In partnership with foundations, universities and corporate innovators, Chloe Capital has set out on a national tour to #InvestInWomen.
