We are super excited about our new investment in Maker’s Row and have reserved an allocation for you all to join us in revolutionizing manufacturing in America. For the first time on AngelList, two syndicates have joined forces (Kapor Capital & Expansion VC) to co-syndicate this one time deal.
Kapor Capital has been pioneering a model of impact investing in seed stage tech startups that accelerate positive social change. Investments are intended to close gaps due to unequal access in education, health, communication, and financial services. We are especially excited about those startups making discontinuous leaps in innovation, and we have a relentless commitment to finding the most promising tech founders regardless of race, ethnicity, or gender. Among our previous investments are Class Dojo, Clever, PayNearMe, LendUp, Pigeonly, and Uber.
Expansion VC is a New York City VC firm founded by brothers Joseph and Ryan Melohn. Focused on early and growth stage opportunities, EVC has made 50+ investments over past few years and has been fortunate to invest in several amazing entrepreneurs and businesses including @Postmates, @RelayRides, @Life360, @AngelList, @TheRealReal and many more. As entrepreneurs, “we have been in their shoes and speak the same language” and are firm believers that "Entrepreneurs, not VC’s, build great companies!!” Our ultimate joy is when we watch a company grow from its seed round all the way to IPO or exit, it is very gratifying - more than a return may be.
However, EVC remembers its early days in the tech world and how hard it was for a newbie to invest in deals that were being financed by major funds, VC’s, and leads. As such, we are excited to have an AL Syndicate to allow individuals such as yourselves the opportunity to invest alongside us…Come join us!!!
Kapor Capital is syndicating CodeHS. CodeHS provides high schools with a "class in a box," giving them everything they need to start teaching a computer science class. Lots of traction, significant growth, passionate team.
