Pitch Event for Women-led Companies @ The Penthouse at One East Ave | Rochester | 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 kicking things off in Rochester!

Five NYS women-led innovation companies will pitch LIVE on December 4, 2018 in Rochester, NY. One of them will receive equity funding. Join our network of top CEOs, investors and innovation leaders. Secure your seat to the pitch event today.



Chloe Capital is a seed-stage venture capital firm that invests in women-led innovation companies. In partnership with The Entrepreneurs Network (TEN) powered by Imagine Monroe, we invite you to a night of excitement 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.”



Does my company need to be in Rochester?

Companies do not need to be located in Rochester, NY to apply to pitch or receive investment. Founders should be prepared to travel. Pitching in person is a must! Women-led innovation companies can apply to pitch for funding at

Does my company need to be located in Rochester? 

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 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. Express your interest in being an event vendor at
