Sexual Harassment In Tech Is Not To Be Tolerated

Sexual Harassment In Tech Is Not To Be Tolerated

21-Aug-2014 by Startupbootcamp

In light of the recent release of sexual harassment messages from European angel investor Pavel Curda, Startupbootcamp sends our sympathies to the two women, one of them being very near and dear to the Startupbootcamp and Rainmaking Loft family.

Curda is no longer affiliated with any of the Startupbootcamp programs. His behavior is completely unacceptable and absolutely not tolerated here. We do not wish to publically shame Curda or draw any more attention to the women, but we also believe that the best way to deal with sexual harassment in this industry is to speak openly about it. We applaud the women for their courage in coming forward and speaking out, and encourage raising awareness through open dialogue.
