Welcome to ESG in VC #StandWithUkraine



All participants in the venture community (LPs, fund managers and VC professionals, founders, and end consumers) no longer need to be convinced that environmentally-and-socially responsible companies will outperform in years to come.
This initiative (ESG in VC) is an attempt to gather various learnings and views in our collective effort to focus on complex issues associated with ESG frameworks and in our quest to be kinder to our planet and people.
