Black Lives Matter

Black Lives Matter

At Foundry Group, we condemn racism. The systemic racism and oppression that has been deeply seated in the fabric of our society for centuries must end. Black lives matter and we are appalled by racially-driven violence, police brutality, and murder.

As a firm, we acknowledge that we have a poor track record of racial diversity, both within our organization and in our investments.

We commit to contributing to positive change now: to educate ourselves and listen so that we may become strong allies and advocates; to invest in Black entrepreneurs and investors and help recruit Black employees to our portfolio; to work with and support Black entrepreneurial leaders and organizations.

We recognize that a statement of support is insufficient and that actions speak louder than words. We commit to action on our part and send love to those in pain.
