Chloe Capital National Tour 

Chloe Capital is a seed-stage venture capital firm that invests in women-led innovation companies. We’re holding investing workshops and pitch events across the U.S. Our initiatives support local women entrepreneurs, and empower local investors to take action.


Why is this important?

Studies show that diverse teams with women at the helm grow faster and produce higher returns for investors. Women-led tech companies receive less than 5% of all venture capital in the U.S., while just .2% goes to African American female founders. Chloe Capital will make our investment decisions based on merit, without bias, providing investors with an opportunity to Do Well by Doing Good.


What makes this different?

Chloe Capital works with Event Champions to encourage qualifying women entrepreneurs to apply, and select the best of the best with proper due diligence BEFORE the women pitch. Collaboration continues as Chloe Capital works with Event Champions to open doors, and drive business results after the investment. These efforts best position the company for achieving success and delivering a healthy return on investment. Boston Champions join Chloe Capital in providing meaningful connections from their extensive business and funding contacts.

How do I get involved?

Accredited women and men who support the movement can attend an exclusive dinner and workshop on February 6-7, 2019 in Denver, CO. These opportunities are invite-only. Connect with us to receive the registration code : info@chloecapital.com

Accredited individuals and sponsors interested in learning more about joining this movement can contact us : chloecapital.com/contact

Women-led innovation companies that missed the deadline for Denver can apply to pitch in other cities on the Chloe Capital Nation Tour : chloecapital.com/tour


What kind of companies does Chloe Capital invest in?

Chloe Capital focuses on innovation companies with macro potential, a validated prototype and at least one female in the C-Suite. Innovation companies include frontier tech, cleantech and agtech. In addition, companies with diverse leadership teams that include a tech leader, and revenue and/or contracts secured with clients/customers will rise to the top of our list.


Can I still participate in the pitch event if I don’t have a frontier tech company?

While Chloe Capital does not invest Food & Beverage and Consumer Product companies at this time, non-tech enabled companies can apply to be event vendors. These companies will receive visibility through event promotions, as well as the opportunity to meet our investors, judges and advisors. Express your interest in being an event vendor at chloecapital.com/contact


Where else will Chloe Capital be holding events?

Chicago, IL – April 3-4, 2019
Binghamton, NY – May 1, 2019

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.

Since, Chloe Capital has helped Mi Padrino raise an additional $2 million in funding by connecting the founder with investors including Astia Angels and the XOGroup.

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. 

ICYMI – Chloe Capital announced our first investment of the tour at the Rochester Women Investors Forum. Congratulations to Caroline and Christine Strzalka, co-founders of It’s By U!
