NEW ORLEANS — Calling all women-led companies to apply for a one-day Venture Pop-Up on Feb. 6, 2020. Chloe Capital and ECMC Foundation unite to invest up to $250,000 in women-led companies as part of a National Tour to #InvestInWomen. Entrepreneurs who are transforming their local communities with solutions to advance Education Innovation, College Success, Career Readiness and Workforce Transformation can apply at ChloeCapital.com/funding.
The next stop in New Orleans comes at a time when, “Louisiana Board of Regents recently approved a new master plan for higher education,” said David Jacobs, author, “New Orleans City Business.”
“Chloe Capital is excited to bring our Movement to Invest in Women to New Orleans and Charlotte,” said Kathryn Cartini, partner, Chloe Capital. “We’re calling all female founders locally and nationally to apply for their shot on stage.”
Five women-led companies will be selected to pitch their ventures during the Invest In Women: Future of Work & Education experience on Feb. 6 in New Orleans.
ECMC Foundation launched Education Innovation Ventures to invest in companies with a mission to improve educational outcomes and economic mobility among students from underserved backgrounds. In addition, founders will gain visibility and connections to top-tier investors.
“Our goal at ECMC Foundation is to support innovation in education and invest in scalable solutions that improve outcomes for underserved learners,” said Jessica Haselton, director of Education Innovation Ventures, ECMC Foundation. “Thanks to our partnership with Chloe Capital, we are able to identify and invest in more women-led ventures focused on expanding educational opportunity and economic mobility.”
“As a New Orleans native, I’m excited about bringing our tour home to New Orleans to fund female founders in collaboration with ECMC Foundation. We have set out to find the next up and coming women-led companies that are making an impact in their communities,” said Elisa Miller-Out, partner, Chloe Capital. Miller-Out was raised in New Orleans and is now based in Ithaca, NY.
