We have been busy at Chloe Capital these last few months as we prepare for our national tour to drive more capital towards women-led innovation companies. I would like to share some updates from my recent travels and keep you posted on where you can join us in the next few months.

In September, I went to New Orleans for the B Corp Champions Retreat. While there, I visited local startup incubators including Idea Village and Propeller. I spent time mentoring women entrepreneurs from each and spotted some promising companies to keep an eye on for the upcoming funding opportunities during our tour.

In October, I attended UVC’s Upstate Unleashed, the largest annual gathering of the Upstate NY entrepreneurial community. Then I headed to NYC for the High Water Women Investing for Impact Symposium and an Alliance Bernstein event focused on Women, Wealth and Wellness. New feminist travel magazine, Unearth Women was having a launch event, so I stopped by Elsie Rooftop to join in the festivities.

This week I’ll be at the IC-SVN gathering in Brooklyn to meet rising social entrepreneurs in search of capital and keep up to date on the latest developments in the impact investing movement.

I was selected as a mentor at SXSW and will be holding mentoring office hours there and at Capital Factory in Austin this March. I will be joined by one of our leading #MANbassadors, Steven Freidmutter. If you’re interested in connecting during our Austin visit, please get in touch.

You can also always find me mentoring at Rev Ithaca, LaunchNY, NYSERDA and more.

There is so much more work to be done in this movement to bring gender parity to the tech entrepreneurship and venture capital world. The opportunity for impact and a superior financial return from investing in these underestimated founders is tremendous.
