In partnership with ECMC Foundation, Chloe Capital has continued our national tour to #InvestInWomen! Our latest funding opportunity for women-led innovation companies took place in New Orleans, LA on February 6, 2020. This 24-hr program for female founders included talks with women leaders, and the opportunity to pitch for investments. Participants also gained visibility and connections to an ecosystem committed to equality and diversity. It was our honor to celebrate a room full of women with a history of turning obstacles into opportunities.
