Pitch Event for Women-led Companies @ Koffman Southern Tier Incubator
May 1 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Pitch Event for Women-led Companies @ Koffman Southern Tier Incubator | Binghamton | New York | United States

Chloe Capital is on a mission to advance solutions to the diversity gap in entrepreneurship. We focus on frontier technologies, and rapidly growing markets. We’re ready to make our next five investments during pitch events across the U.S. — and we’re coming to Binghamton!

Five women-led innovation companies will pitch LIVE on May 1, 2019 at the Koffman Southern Tier Incubator in Binghamton, NY. One of them will receive equity funding. This event is part of the Southern Tier Startup Summit in collaboration with KSTI and Binghamton University. Join our network of top CEOs, investors and innovation leaders.

 


 

Chloe Capital is a seed-stage venture capital firm that invests in women-led innovation companies. In collaboration with the Koffman Southern Tier Incubator, Binghamton University, NYSERDA, NYSTEC, Empire State Development, Upstate Venture Connect and more, invite you to an evening of inspiration and purpose.

Despite recent progress, 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. This is a missed opportunity. Studies show that diverse teams with women at the helm grow faster and produce higher returns for investors. We call this, “Doing Well by Doing Good.”

 


 

FAQs

Does my company need to be in Binghamton?

What kind of companies does Chloe Capital invest in?

Chloe Capital focuses on Frontier Technologies, Cleantech and Agtech. Companies must have at least one female in the C-Suite, a working prototype and the potential to capture large, rapidly-growing markets. In addition, companies with diverse leadership teams, more than one full-time team member (tech leader preferred), 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?

Yes, women-led Food & Beverage and Consumer Product 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.
