Capital Foundation & NYBPC

The Capital Foundation delivers two programs: the NYBPC and the Executive Peer Group. The entity is Upstate Capital’s 501c3 non-profit charitable organization that cultivates entrepreneurship through education and peer learning across New York.


NYBPC + Techstars

The Techstars Foundation is supporting the NYBPC!

The Techstars Foundation will match 20% of every dollar raised by March 31, 2022, up to $25,000. They also provide mentorship and resources for NYBPC participants and leadership. This is an amazing opportunity for global visibility for New York innovators and its supporters throughout Techstars’ global network.

Donate and/or sponsor to help us reach our goal of $175,000.
