We’re back! Coffee with fellow iOS Devs! Also need office space?
Oct 17 @ 8:30 am – 10:30 am

Hey Folks! After a long hiatus, it would be nice to see some friendly faces again. I’ll try to get some technical talks going, but in addition to that, let’s do some morning socializing. Extending from a meetup Thumbwork’s other founder started in the Bay Area, we’re going to do morning coffee once a week with fellow iOS Devs and Designers. I’ll try and rotate the location, but we’ll have a default. We’ll start at Glen Edith near University. We have a website too to be a remote part of that cool crowd! https://coffeecoffeecoffee.coffee/rochester That has a calendar you can subscribe to. (For the love of monkeys don’t download the file at the link, but get that calendar URL and subscribe to it in Calendar.app). In addition to the meeting, I’m looking to gauge interest in renting office space at a mobile development/design focused office run by Thumbworks. I’m looking at a couple locations, and need to know what type of interest there is. Please consider filling out this form: https://goo.gl/forms/NXteUOlmB9oWoMTA3 Best,Bob Spryn

Pitch Event for Women-led Companies @ The Penthouse at One East Ave
Dec 4 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
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.”

 


FAQs

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 chloecapital.com/tour

Accredited investors and sponsors interested in learning more about joining our movement can reach out at chloecapital.com/contact.

 

Where else will Chloe Capital be holding pitch events?

Boston, MA  – January 11, 2019
Denver, CO – February 7, 2019
Chicago, IL – April 4, 2019
Binghamton, NY – May 1, 2019

 

Does my company need to be located in Rochester? 

Chloe Capital focuses on frontier technologies including B2B SaaS, Blockchain, AI, AR/VR, Voice, Bots, IoT, Robotics, Wearables, Hardware, 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 contacts 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. Express your interest in being an event vendor at chloecapital.com/contact.
