Chloe Capital’s mission is to decrease the gender gap in entrepreneurship and venture capital. We further this mission by providing women entrepreneurs across the U.S. with mentoring, connections to resources and access to capital.
Founded by three women tech-trepreneurs, Chloe Capital launched during our inaugural Women Investors Accelerator in October 2017. The program united women founders with women investors, who joined Chloe Capital in making our first investment in Mi Padrino.
Mi Padrino is an online event planning platform and marketplace for the Hispanic community. Founder and international businesswoman Kim Gamez has grown Mi Padrino to over 200,000 active users in 1 year. This super-charged growth has attracted the attention of investors, and major brands such as Pepsi and Mattel.
The women at Chloe Capital know Tech and Marketing, but more importantly, they understand women and the magical dance that we play to balance work and home. It’s this recipe for success that makes female entrepreneurs succeed. It’s what puts Chloe Capital a step ahead of the rest.”

Since our investment, Chloe Capital has helped Mi Padrino raise an additional $2 million in funding by connecting Kim with investors including Astia Angels and the XOGroup. It’s fiesta time!
Off the heels of this success, City Champions from across the U.S. reached out to Chloe Capital, requesting we bring the experience to their ecosystems. What better way to beat the drum about this cause than to go on tour and collaborate with these leaders in innovation. Together, we’re attracting top talent, inspiring investors to join the movement, and building a genuine community that supports women entrepreneurs.
Chloe Capital announced our first investment of the Chloe Capital National Tour at the Rochester Women Investors Forum. Congratulations to Caroline and Christine Strzalka, co-founders of It’s By U!
It’s By U delivers DYI flower arrangement kits from the farm to U. The founders are already selling 400 kits a month, and they’re using blockchain and predictive analysis technology to increase profit margins. Chloe Capital’s investment will help It’s By U scale to capture the $16B U.S. retail flower market. Victory smells so sweet.
Our second investment of the Chloe Capital National Tour was announced at the Boston Women Investors Forum. Congratulations to Amanda Curtis and Gemma Sole, co-founders of Nineteenth Amendment!
