VCs, business and tech leaders stand with APPI community

Venture capitalists Alfred Lin, David Sze, Aileen Lee, Theresia Gouw, Christine Tsai and Wen Hsieh, among others, signed the pledge to help end discrimination and hateful attacks against Asian communities.

America-Asian venture capitalists and leaders from the tech and business communities pledged their support and donated $10 million collectively to help stop discrimination and hateful attacks against Asian communities. Among the 1,000 people who signed the pledge are Alfred Lin of Sequoia Capital, David Sze of Greylock Partners, Aileen Lee of Cowboy Capital, Theresia Gouw of Acrew Capital, Christine Tsai of 500 Startups and Wen Hsieh of Kleiner Perkins.

In a letter that ran as a full-page in the Wall Street Journal and began with the headline “Enough,” the group said, “We are tired of being treated as less than American, subject to harassment and now, every day, we read about another member of our community being physically attacked – simply for being Asian.”
