Join the Pledge!
While we appreciate the support of individuals who share our vision for a more inclusive tech industry in Los Angeles, only companies and venture capital firms can take the official Pledge. If you are unsure if your organization qualifies, or you would like to find out how else you can help, please contact us: [email protected]
To join PledgeLA, you must be a venture capital fund or tech company with headquarters or offices in the Greater Los Angeles area (Los Angeles County) and be willing to:
- Allow and encourage your staff and portfolio companies (if applicable) to participate in an annual survey on community engagement and diversity, equity, and inclusion.
- Share your staff’s contact information – including one point-person per portfolio company – with PledgeLA, so we can administer the annual survey. (Note: We adhere to a strict confidentiality policy and will not share contact information with anyone outside our evaluation team nor engage with contacts beyond the evaluation.)
- Participate in activities to improve your community engagement in Los Angeles and the diversity, equity, and inclusion of your organization
If you meet the above qualifications, taking the Pledge is as simple as completing this short online form.
We are always looking for partners who can help us advance the mission of PledgeLA.
If you’re a non-profit organization interested in partnering with PledgeLA, please complete this short form.
If you’re a nonprofit organization interested in a partnership, please complete this short form. While programming for 2019 is currently being scheduled, we are most interested in volunteer opportunities for our members and resources to educate our base about issues facing Angelenos. At present, we do not facilitate donations on behalf of PledgeLA members, but we do work to build relationships between community organizations and tech leaders.
While we can’t make any promises, we are collecting information about LA-based startups led by underrepresented founders for future networking opportunities, pitch competitions, etc. If you’re interested, tell us more about your company and feel free to send a concise pitch deck to [email protected].
