Shervin Pishevar yesterday resigned from Sherpa Capital, the San Francisco venture capital firm he co-founded in 2013, following multiple allegations of sexual misconduct (all of which he continues to deny).

A source familiar with the situation says that Pishevar's resignation was voluntary (i.e., he wasn't pushed out). But there has been tension inside the firm over the past several weeks, particularly as Sherpa has kept finding itself playing last-minute defense.
