It is a center for innovation, for bringing communities together in a unique way.

A center that aims to make the technology ecosystem and entrepreneurship more diverse and inclusive.

Their Priorities

  • Increasing diverse tech entrepreneurship.
  • Increasing access to capital.
  • Increasing access to tech and STEM education.
  • Building strong community and community institutions to promote a more diverse tech ecosystem in the Bay Area, with a special focus on Oakland, our home.
  • Leveraging our Oakland HQ as a gathering place for learning and leadership opportunities that help build/expand the startup ecosystem of gap-closing companies, especially in Oakland.

The Kapor Center Vision

  1. Advance the body of knowledge about the leaky pipeline by conducting, disseminating and evangelizing action oriented research that leads to more effective, evidence-based solutions.
  2. Address the pipeline problem by fixing all of the leaks along the pipeline for underrepresented populations, with an emphasis on African Americans and Latina/os.
  3. Be a catalyst for others in the tech world to match or exceed (in time, attention or money in proportion to their resources), so that a decade from now tech will look more like America.
  4. Align strategies and efforts between three organizations – the Kapor Center, Level Playing Field Institute and Kapor Capital – to provide a comprehensive approach to expanding tech inclusion.
