On the Bleeding Edge: Int’l Women’s Day; new offices for Foundation, CRV; Craig leaves Arena; NEA’s Pi Day; NVCA gala

March 8 was the first International Women’s Day in the wake of last year’s events, in which we saw sexual-harassment accusations levied against several VCs.

For a recap of who was forced to resign or step away from their VC duties, you can read Kaitlyn Bartley‘s roundup story in our Year in Review section.

The positive news is that on IWD, entrepreneurs Cheryl Sew Hoy‏ and Andrea Coravos launched Project #MovingForward, an open-source initiative highlighting VCs committed to diverse, inclusive and harassment-free workplaces.

The project supports VC firms’ external anti-harassment and discrimination policies for individuals outside the firm, and creates formal points of contact for reporting incidences.

A number of firms declared their commitment to the project, and more are adding their names to the list. You can follow along at wearemovingforward.github.io.

Hoy also wrote a LinkedIn post about the project.

Hoy’s interest in the project is not just passing. Last year, Hoy, who had ties to 500 Startups, published an account of her experiences with founder Dave McClure. Hoy said she had been propositioned several times by McClure and once fended him off after he cornered her and kissed her without consent.

McClure resigned after this and other accusations came to light.

More than eight years ago, I wrote about the office of Foundation Capital, a 20,000-square-foot Spanish Colonial revival-style building on Middlefield Road in the eastern side of Menlo Park. It’s about 10 minutes, or sometimes as much as 30 minutes in traffic, from the storied Sand Hill Road.

What made the office unique is that Foundation Capital, which renovated the building, became the first venture firm to have offices awarded LEED Gold Certification. This means it has passed several “green” or conservation-focused construction and building metrics.

The LEED award was a point of pride for the firm, which had a cleantech practice and was an investor in Silver Sprint Networks and Sunrun, among others.

Also, much of the portfolio was used to help reconstruct the building, including Serious Materials, which supplied eco-friendly drywall, Control4 provided lighting and heating management, ShoreTel delivered enterprise class VoIP and Pano Logic came through with desktop virtualization.

Even the building’s construction process was green, as 412 tons of building debris was diverted from landfills to recycling centers.

The building had a large outdoor reception area that was ideal for its summer parties and other events that I’ve attended over the years.

However, 250 Middlefield Road is now vacant. Foundation Capital has relocated 1 1/2 miles away to 550 High Street in Palo Alto. Their new home is across the street from the office of True Ventures.

The move accompanies a freshening of the Foundation Capital logo to a rounded lowercase font, which you can see on their website at foundationcapital.com.

A Foundation Capital spokesperson said that the new office is not LEED-certified and that they plan to hold an open-house event in April.

The firm declined to answer my other questions about the new and old offices and why the move. Instead, the spokesperson cited a story due to come out in FastCo. I haven’t seen any article yet. Will update you as soon as I do or when Foundation partners can comment.

Speaking of new offices, the South Park region of San Francisco is filling up with more venture firms. And I’m told that space is still available surrounding the oval-shaped park that the area gets its name from. But not all newcomers to San Francisco are looking to hang a shingle with a South Park addy.

CRV has opened a satellite location at 568 Brannan Street. OK, it’s only a 10-minute walk to South Park. But at an open-house event this month, I noticed CRV’s new site features a much more warehouse type of feel in a 25,000-square-foot, two-story building than what I’m seeing from the rest of South Park. I imagine this may appeal as a more startup-friendly atmosphere.

CRV also has offices in Boston and Palo Alto.

The San Francisco digs is a stone’s throw from Greylock Partners on Bluxome Street.

In December, I wrote about rumors I was hearing in regard to Arena Ventures Founder and General Partner Paige Craig. Craig, an angel investor in Lyft, AngelList, Postmates and Twitter, among others, told me at the time he was not shutting down the firm, but was noticing changes in the seed market and was shifting strategies. He promised to share more when the new strategy was in place.

However, that strategy took a turn when Fortune last week came out with a story that Craig has left the firm he started to join the electric scooter company Bird and head its U.S operations.

Craig remains listed on the Arena Ventures website with Managing Partner Jeff Lo.

I messaged Craig to ask him questions about Arena as well as what I’m seeing is a growing and heated market for bike and scooter sharing. I’ll let you all know when I hear back.

This week is Pi Day. The mathematical constant pi, or π, begins with 3.14, so here in the U.S. math nerds and pie lovers alike have decided to celebrate March 14 as Pi Day. It’s an all-inclusive day for pizza pies and dessert pies.

No one takes their pie more seriously than an assortment of staffers at New Enterprise Associates. You can follow along with their love of dessert pies on Twitter at @NEASFpie.

As it just so happens, my calendar shows that the NVCA is hosting a mix and mingle party at NEA’s South Park office on Pi Day.

I am expecting pie and I hope it’s vegan.

The NVCA is also hosting its annual Leadership Gala at the Rosewood Sand Hill on March 15. Here’s my roundup of last year’s event.

If you’re there, say hi. I’m sitting at the table with Warburg Pincus. Managing Director Tim Curt is the 2017 recipient of the NVCA Industry Impact Award.
