To generate economic value and positive social impact, Oakland-based investment fund Kapor Capital invests in human capital. Today, Kapor Capital will be funding 10 conference passes – to be awarded to women of color – to attend the upcoming Women 2.0 Conference  on November 14 – 15 in Las Vegas.

Kapor Capital is sponsoring ten scholarships for women of color who are otherwise financially unable to attend Women 2.0′s 2013 Las Vegas conference on November 14 – 15. Attendees will get the opportunity to not only learn and hear from successful women executives and founders of technology companies but will also get a chance to network in an intimate environment with fellow entrepreneurs, investors and technologists.

Conference highlights include a wearable tech fashion show, featuring pieces from the most cutting edge names in fashion tech, panels from a range of highly accomplished women across tech industries, the opening launch of Founder Friday Las Vegas and an intimate concert with famed artist, Congo Sanchez from Thievery Corporation.

The scholarship deadline is Monday October 21, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. PDT, winners will also be announced on that day on Tuesday, Oct. 22nd. We appreciate Kapor Capital for taking the initiative to support women in tech by providing financial resources to drive social change in communities of color.

“The scarcity of any women at most tech startup events is mirrored by the scarcity of African American and Latina women at events for women entrepreneurs. Just as Women 2.0 sees a need and is working diligently to fill it, we at Kapor Capital want to make sure that *all* women can participate in and contribute to the tech startup ecosystem,” said Freada Kapor Klein, partner at Kapor Capital.

Brian Dixon, a Kapor Capital associate, will be one of the investors available at Women 2.0’s lunch mentorship to meet -sign up now before the session fills up -and enter to win a ticket to our VIP Influencer Reception! He will also be available at the conference to talk to anyone who wants to connect.
