*This voluntary Pledge is merely a starting point. We believe that by putting a stake in the ground, and publicly declaring our commitments, we will create a baseline. We hope that venture capital firms will aim high, and there should be no shame in missing a target. The most important measure will be that the trend line scales rapidly upward in future years.
