Space Rental

March 6, 2020 UPDATE:

The Kapor Center holds the health and safety of our community, guests, and staff in high regard. To that end, we are temporarily halting space rentals as we consider a larger strategy in response to the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Please check back periodically for updates. Thank you, and stay healthy.

The Kapor Center is a destination for robust conversations and action around tech, diversity and inclusion, and social impact. We are excited about working with other organizations and companies to co-host effective and compelling mission-aligned events to be held in our facilities. We seek to provide space to organizations and companies that: 1) are aligned with our tech diversity and inclusion-focused mission and priorities and 2) will bring new audiences to the Kapor Center. For more details about our facility, built to LEED Gold standards and opened in June 2016, please download About Our Home. To be considered, events should have a tech diversity and inclusion focus and take place between Monday and Friday. Events cannot be scheduled prior to 8 AM or after 9 PM (No set-ups earlier than 8 AM.). After-hours events must have at least 20 attendees. Our space is not available over weekends. Only the Lotus Theater can be used for any event that has programming (speakers, panels, AV, slides, etc.). Any networking/receptions after a Lotus Theater event will take place in the foyer outside the Lotus Theater. We prefer to receive requests at least 4 weeks prior to the event date. We do not consider any requests more than 4 months prior to the event date. Our outdoor roof space is available for reception-style events with minimal speaking roles and is available from May to October. Rental of the roof space does not include the fourth floor indoor cafe. If interested in space, please submit a request through our Space Rental Form. Events held in the Kapor Center facility are not eligible for cash sponsorship. Click HERE to see photos of available rooms at the Kapor Center.
