Who is Cleo?

Chicago Ladies Entrepreneur Organization (CLEO) strives to encourage and empower female business owners through unique collaborations and events.

CLEO was an idea that was born with Rachel Palos of Rad Ass Party and Liliana Salamanca of Sweet Lady Flan. Liliana and Rachel met in the summer of 2013 and began working together for various events. They had one great thing in common: both had just started their own businesses. They began discussing various components of starting and running a business. After attending a few networking events together, they saw the potential in doing similar events. They wanted to create an organization to help other female entrepreneurs, while also networking and bringing awareness to each others businesses. 

A previous Cleo Event
The sole purpose for creating this organization is for women entrepreneurs to have a platform for empowerment and collaboration with each other. The first event was in December of 2013 and featured five female business owners. In less than a year, the involvement has grown to over 20 female entrepreneurs or business owners.
