On behalf of the Start-ups on your roster we want to say thank you. As you are probably aware, every Start-up on your roster receives a portion of your pledge. The contributions from the vVC community provide extremely important seed capital to our early stage companies working their way through the difficult start-up phase towards profitability. It is a time when capital is hard to come by, so every dollar is appreciated.
