Deadline: March 1, 2022

A call for applications is being issued for the Kapor Fellows: Venture Capital Program in the year 2022. Since 2007, the Kapor Center has offered summer internship programs that are designed to increase the number of underrepresented individuals who enter technology companies, venture capital, and tech-based entrepreneurship by a factor of ten or greater.

As of this year, the Kapor Fellows: Venture Capital Program (previously known as the Kapor Capital Summer Associate Program) has expanded to include six partner funds, each of which will host a group of summer associates as well. Both direct investors in technology startups and Limited Partners who make investments in fund managers are represented by partner funds. Partner funds are managed by a diverse group of executives and invest across a wide range of industries.

Additionally, a few summer fellows will work with a group of four Kapor Capital portfolio companies who are developing a shared offering to assist low-income citizens of color in urban areas, in addition to working with the fund. The companies are involved in energy, financial technology, and workforce development.
