At our Vator Splash Spring event earlier this month, Mitch Kapor, Founder of the Kapor Center for Social Impact, sat down with Vator CEO and founder Bambi Francisco in a session entitled, “Diversity & Social Factors: How innovation can have the biggest global impact."

Among other things, he discussed his early investment in Uber (whose social impact could be discussed all day). Kapor called driving for Uber "a great second job."
