    Description:

    Kapor Capital invests in seed and early stage startups whose success in business generates positive social impact. The firm is particularly interested in new platforms and in the use of information technology to achieve those goals. The firm's founder, Mitch Kapor, was founder and former CEO of Lotus Development Corporation and the designer of Lotus 1-2-3, the 'killer application' which made the personal computer ubiquitous in the business world in the 1980s. Kapor Capital invests in tech-driven seed stage companies committed to closing gaps of access, opportunity or outcome for low income communities and/or communities of color in the United States. The firm is particularly interested in those that address gaps of disproportionate relevance to African-Americans and Latinx communities. Kapor Capital is open to invest across every sector, including education, work, finance, justice, food and health.
