Chloe Lowe, Founder of Parent List
Chloe has created a parenting app to help busy parents manage the mental load of parenting and achieve a better, more positive sense of wellbeing. Chloe and her team are parents themselves, mental wellbeing supporters and early years professionals, so fully understand the challenges. The Parent List app is designed to help support parents of children aged 0 to 5 by providing a series of checklists, videos and expert interviews.
How did you find out about TEAM SY’s Get Funding Fit programme?
I heard about the The Get Funding Fit programme on LinkedIn via one of TEAM SY’s Super Connectors. The application was easy and I was really happy to be accepted.
How have you found the experience of being part of an investment readiness programme?
Being part of an investment readiness programme was quite a turning point for me, both mentally and practically. It provided such clarification around where my strengths, weaknesses and opportunities are and has helped me rethink and redefine some of my plans and expectations, in a good way.
Has it helped you or your business in anyway?
It has given me confidence that I can hold my own in a male- dominated area. It has also helped me identify some quite important gaps that I need to take action to be able to progress down the investment route when the time is right.
What do you think about South Yorkshire as a place to start a business?
South Yorkshire has always been a really diverse area with lots of incredible stories from people to arts and culture. It was a privilege to be among other entrepreneurs on the investment programme. I find this region so supportive – most people I meet as a startup are eager to help, listen and share in a really friendly and collaborative way.
What are your next steps?
My focus for 2022 is on gaining traction with my business and building a core team around me to help drive it forward. The mentoring and knowledge I have gained from the programme has really helped me plan the route that’s right for me and my business.
