We are proud to reside in Oakland, CA...



Oakland, CA

A city known for its community orientation, intersectional activism, and grassroots approach to problem solving. Its proximity to the largest tech hub, Silicon Valley, makes Oakland a high opportunity space for tech entrepreneurship, but with an imperative to do tech right as displacement and erasure are urgent and growing community problems

Located in Uptown – 2148 Broadway

On the second floor of the Kapor Center, where Oakland comes together to leverage information technology to solve real world problems

Applications are open for the next cohort!

We are looking for our next cohort of community oriented tech founders. Applications due November 30th, 2018 11:55pm.
