Rising Up

Our third program in partnership with ECMC Foundation was scheduled to be held in Charlotte, NC. Given the circumstances we decided not to cancel, or even postpone. Now more than ever we must #InvestInWomen, and we’re honored to celebrate the female founders defining the Future of Work & Education.

Helping Essential Workers Find & Afford Childcare During COVID-19

Congratulations to BridgeCare’s Jamee Herbert, CEO and co-founder, and JC Kirst, CTO and co-founder, who received a $100,000 investment from Chloe Capital. With monthly childcare costing more than the average mortgage payment, it’s no surprise that over 50 percent of millennials have already left a job due to caregiving challenges. BridgeCare is a workplace benefit that helps parents find childcare and afford it by using pre-taxed dollars. Employers also save on payroll taxes, and reduce costs associated with losing valuable talent.

When the pandemic hit, BridgeCare’s search software was repurposed to help essential workers at government agencies across the country, including the state of Texas.

Now you can pay it forward by introducing Jamee to your HR director. Contact us >

The stars aligned for several other investors and founders as well. ECMC Foundation presented EdSights co-founders Claudia and Carolina Recchi with a $150,000 investment opportunity. EdSights uses AI to solve the college dropout crisis. And ECMC board member and Rezon8 Capital CEO K. Paul Singh extended an impact investment of $25,000 to Amanda DoAmaral, founder and CEO of Fiveable. Fiveable is a social learning platform for students and teachers, currently focused on AP exam prep.

Future of Work & Education

ECMC Foundation has partnered with Chloe Capital to invest in women. We’ve combined our Firm’s investment thesis with ECMC Foundation’s mission to advance solutions to postsecondary education. Together we hosted a trilogy of programs in Los Angeles, New Orleans, and now virtually.

We’re proud to report that in six months, Chloe Capital and ECMC Foundation have invested $1.25 million in women-led companies at the forefront of Work & Education. Learn more >
