We call on all participants in the venture funded economy to end the support of genocide.
To employees, ask hard questions of the founders and leadership. Do they support terrorism? Do they support genocide? Is your pay check tainted in blood?
To founders, ask the hard questions of your current and future investors. Do they support terrorism? Do they support genocide? Do they support or fund regimes who drop bombs on innocent civilians? Is your cap table tainted in blood?
To general partners and venture firms, we ask you to look within your partnerships. Do your partners hold the same values that you hold? Do your partners incite violence with their words? Do your partners support and fund genocide? Do your firm's stated values align with your own? Is your carry tainted in blood?
To limited partners and investors, we ask that you hold the funds, venture firms, and limited partners that you invest in, to account. Do your limited partners incite violence with their words? Do your limited partners support genocide? Is your money being used to fund genocide? Are your returns tainted in blood?
Violence, terrorism, genocide, and the apathy for human life regardless of race, colour, nor religion, should have zero space in our economy.
We ask that you hold those around you to account.
