Diversifying Tech By Removing Barriers

We make the tech ecosystem and entrepreneurship more diverse, inclusive, and impactful.

Our Work

From SMASH to Startups

The Kapor family of organizations works to remove barriers to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education and tech careers for underrepresented people of color. We take a comprehensive approach to fixing the leaks at every stage of the tech pipeline, from K-12 education through the workplace with education programs, advocacy, and social impact investing.

Leaky Tech Pipeline:

The Leaky Tech Pipeline website is an interactive tool for exploring research and data on diversity in tech to inspire effective solutions.
