Our statement about diversity and inclusion  

Our Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and inclusion are core values at Sherpa, both in the team members we hire and in the entrepreneurs we choose to fund. We are proud of our track record of supporting founders and recruiting and hiring candidates from historically underrepresented backgrounds, including women, people of color, members of the LGBTQ community and immigrants. We believe that no race, gender, nationality or sexual orientation has a monopoly on talented entrepreneurs, and we continually put our values into action through the companies and ideas we support.
