Kapor Center works to close technology “gap”
On the busy corner of Franklin and Broadway, surrounded by restaurants and lounges, stands the new headquarters of the Kapor Center for Social Impact. Remodeling began in mid-September and should be finished in the fall of 2015.
The Kapor Center is an organization that tries to close what staffers like to call “the gap” between those who can access information, education and technology and those who can’t. They attempt to do so by supporting non-profit organizations that provide technological and science skills training to African American, Latino and Native American communities and by investing in promising start-up ideas from those same minority communities.
