United Aircraft Technologies (UAT) is proud to announce that it has been selected as one of five top women-led innovation companies to pitch for an investment from Chloe Capital’s Pitch Event (ChloeCapital.com/tour-binghamton). The event will take place on Wednesday, May 1 from 5-8 p.m. at Koffman Southern Tier Incubator, 125 Hawley Street, Binghamton, NY. UAT was selected from over 1500 women-led companies across the country to present live in front of a crowd of investors and community leaders.
UAT continues to create a new class of fastener for aircraft electrical wiring that is designed to reduce weight, increase fuel efficiency, decrease the occurence of repetitive strain injuries, improve safety, and simplify maintenance. UAT's CEO, Evaguel Rhysing, along with the team have secured collaboration and support from many industry experts and leaders such as the Army Research Lab, Sikorsky Innovations, and Lockheed Martin. As a woman in the aviation and technology market, Mrs. Rhysing is honored and excited over the opportunity to showcase in their National Tour.
"I'm honored to have my company selected among so many other women-led companies. I am thankful that organizations such as Chloe Capital exist out there to help keep raising awareness about the gender gap within the entreprenurial world and how women-led companies can be a profitable investment. I'm looking forward to this experience and give it my all."
The goal of the Chloe Capital Pitch Event is to provide funding for women-led innovation companies, increase the number of women investors, and encourage support by male allies. The initiative is being led by venture capital firm, Chloe Capital.
The pitch will culminate a day of celebration during the annual Southern Tier Startup Summit. Chloe Capital’s program will focus on how to address the issue that less than five percent of venture capital in the U.S. goes to women-led tech companies.
Don’t miss this stop on the Chloe Capital National Tour to invest in the best women-led innovation companies across the U.S.
Chloe Capital is a seed-stage VC firm advancing solutions to the gender gap in entrepreneurship and venture capital.

Chloe Capital aims to invest in women entrepreneurs with money and education - and the Firm is moving capital in each city they visit.
