VC lobby says immigration order is "hostile"
The National Venture Capital Association, a trade group that represents most venture capital firms and many private equity firms, on Monday took aim at President Trump's executive order on immigration.
From NVCA president Bobby Franklin:
What I see is a community that views this executive order as hostile to many of our core beliefs. The venture community stands for openness and inclusion, cemented in the belief that immigrants have played a vital role in the success of our country and its entrepreneurial ecosystem.
