Bootup Raises $2.1M Seed Round To Continue Helping Individuals Land Careers In Tech

Bootup has secured new funding. According to a blog post, Bootup — a company that aims to help individuals land jobs in tech — has raised a seed round totaling $2.1 million. The round was led by Kapor Capital, in addition to participation from Lightship Capital, other Black-led funds, investors, and more. “I feel that allocation of capital is the most useful form of activism in a capitalist society,” said Founder and CEO of Bootup, Chandler Malone, in a statement. “This idea was inspired by a conversation with Candice Matthews Brackeen back in 2018 and led to us being intentional about raising from all Black-led funds and angels for our seed round as our work is directly focused on targeting the wealth gap.”
