Venture Capital Firm CRV Says ‘F*CK TRUMP’.
With the exception of a a few prominent supporters, Silicon Valley hasn’t been very receptive to Donald Trump’s message. Venture capital firm Charles River Ventures took that to a new level on Wednesday with a blog post that stated in no uncertain terms how they feel about the Republican nominee.
CRV’s headline is unequivocal: “F*CK TRUMP”. It the partnership went on: “Donald Trump’s anti-immigration statements are diametrically opposed to the core values of entrepreneurship. And at CRV, we’ve had enough. The CRV partnership — united and unanimous — rejects Donald Trump’s candidacy for President of the United States.”
The firm also said that it is putting resources behind its pro-immigrant stance. CRV will begin covering the costs of U.S. visas for any founder in its portfolio and the firm has created a fellowship program to provide “funding, support and office space for immigrant entrepreneurs.”
The post was just the latest Silicon Valley salvo against Trump. Last month, 145 technology CEOs, billionaire investors, and upcoming entrepreneurs from some of the largest companies and startups in the Valley signed an open letter that condemned Trump as “a disaster for innovation.” The list includes Slack’s Stewart Butterfield, IAC’s Barry Diller, Qualcomm’s Irwin Jacobs, Tumblr’s David Karp, Box’s Aaron Levie, Facebook’s Dustin Moskovitz, Reddit’s Alexis Ohanian, eBay’s Pierre Omidyar, Zynga’s Mark Pincus, Medium’s Ev Williams, Apple’s Steve Wozniak, and venture capitalists Vinod Khosla and Chris Sacca.
Trump does have some supporters though, including Facebook investor Peter Thiel, who spoke at the Republican National Convention.
