Kapor Capital Adds Brandon Boros as New Venture Partner

Kapor Capital

Kapor Capital, an Oakland, CA-based impact-focused venture capital firm, announced Brandon Boros as its new Venture Partner.

Joining current Managing Partners Brian Dixon and Ulili Onovakpuri, Boros will help lead the firm’s day-to-day operations and portfolio management.

He joined the Kapor Capital team from Align Impact, where he led the direct investing platform, sourcing and facilitating deals for clients across multiple sectors and impact themes. In addition, he led diligence on numerous funds across venture, private equity, and private debt and served on the impact advisory board of a mezzanine debt fund. Prior to Align Impact, he worked with Impact Engine, a venture capital and private equity firm, where he helped portfolio companies leverage tech to improve the education, health, economic empowerment, and environmental sustainability of communities.

Boros hire followed the launch of Kapor Capital’s Fund III, the firm’s largest fund to date and the first time the firm raised outside capital. In the coming months, Kapor Capital will be continuing its work of sourcing and scaling early-stage companies that are committed to closing gaps in access and opportunity for low-income communities and communities of color.

Since 2011, the firm has invested exclusively in early-stage, tech-driven startups committed to closing gaps of access, opportunity, or outcome for low-income communities and/or communities of color. As a family of organizations, Kapor Capital, Kapor Center, and SMASH work collectively at the intersection of tech, diversity, and entrepreneurship to end racial and gender inequities that persist in the tech ecosystem.
