Kapor Capital is an investment fund based in Oakland, CA that invests in seed stage information technology companies which aspire to generate economic value and positive social impact. Investment sectors include but are not limited to education, health and consumer finance.

Aside from partnering with Kapor Capital to provide scholarships for women of color who are otherwise financially unable to attend, Women 2.0 has a limited number of deeply discounted tickets for bootstrapping entrepreneurs and students. We also have opportunities for volunteering at the conference. Any way you can make it, hope to see you on November 14 at PITCH NYC Conference!
