Rochester Women Investors Forum

The Entrepreneurs Network and Chloe Capital share the goal of investing in women - with money and with education. Our mission is to increase the number of women investors, and provide more funding for women-led innovation companies. Chloe Capital will kick-off its national tour with the Women Investors Forum in Rochester, NY. Working together, TEN and Chloe Capital are building a movement that supports women reaching their fullest potential and having opportunities equal to their male counterparts. Join us for a day of inspiration and purpose. TEN and Chloe Capital are committed to recruiting male allies who support the movement.

Investing Workshop - (11:30am – 4pm) Pitch Event - (5 - 8pm)
Connect with our cast of "Super Angels." Leading women in angel investing and venture capital will share industry insights through inspirational fireside chats, panels and investor talks. This workshop is perfect for accredited individuals interested in startup investing. Founders at the helm of venture-backable companies will also benefit from hearing the investors' perspectives. Space is limited. Five women-led innovation companies from across New York State will pitch their ventures LIVE. One company will receive an investment from Chloe Capital, and the opportunity to pitch our funding partner, Astia Angels, for follow on funding. A panel of experienced investors will help select the winner. These VCs represent leaders in the movement to invest in women. Open to the public.

WHAT'S GOING ON

The SBIR Road Tour is coming to Rochester, NY to present non-dilutive technology funding opportunities provided through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs.

SBIR grants and STTR grants are awarded to for-profit companies where the research you propose is aligned with an agency's needs.

They are NOT loans that your company needs to repay.

They are NOT equity investments.  You do NOT have to give up a percentage of your company in exchange for the federal dollars received. 

This is a unique opportunity to meet with individual program managers from up to 11 participating federal agencies representing $2.5 billion in early-stage funding who will participate in this one-day event alongside technology entrepreneurs and state innovation ecosystem members.
