Gap-Closing Investing: Mitch & Freada Kapor Klein

Mar 12, 2023

11:30am – 12:30pm CT

Tech venture capitalists and founding partners of Kapor Capital, Freada Kapor Klein and Mitch Kapor in conversation with journalist, Michele Norris-Johnson, on their new book Closing the Equity Gap, and how we can create wealth and address inequalities by investing in gap-closing startups—companies whose services or products close opportunity gaps for both communities of color and low-income communities. Since 2011, they have broadened the definition of success to include top returns and accountability for organizational impact on employees, communities, and the planet. They have helped to launch a new ecosystem of Black and Latinx entrepreneurs who are engaged in achieving social and economic justice while showing remarkable growth —and invite others to join them.
