Kapor Fellows Program

Genius is evenly distributed across zip codes, but access and opportunity are not. We provide the opportunity to explore tech and VC careers for those who have been historically excluded from these industries.

For over 10 years the Kapor Center has run summer internship programs designed to provide career pathways to exponentially accelerate the number of underrepresented individuals entering tech companies, venture capital and tech-based entrepreneurship. The Kapor Center runs two summer programs: Kapor Fellows Startup and Kapor Fellows: Venture Capital (formerly known as the Kapor Capital Summer Associate Program). 

Why we care


We believe in the power of community.

Our cohort-based model connects individuals at various stages of their professional career from various industries. This provides fellows the opportunity to learn from one another as well as our mentors


We believe your financial past shouldn’t limit your future.

All of our Fellows are paid a living wage throughout the 10 weeks of the program. We also provide a computer and other tech equipment as needed.


We believe in the power of open networks.

Our weekly speaker series provides our fellows with an opportunity to meet tech and venture capital industry leaders. Fellows also have the opportunity to attend and participate in a variety of industry events throughout the summer.


We believe support shouldn’t end when the internship does.

Our fellows receive access to our talent network connecting them to the 130+ startups within the Kapor Capital portfolio and our extensive VC network.
