Boston VC Firm on Web Site---F*CK TRUMP

A Boston area venture capital company headlined it's website with the F*CK TRUMP declaration, the Boston Globe is reorting. It holds that position because the company claims to have been founded by immigrants and the company abhors Doanld Trumps bigotry.

CRV, a venture capital firm founded in Cambridge, rejected Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy Wednesday in a provocative Web post that said the Republican nominee’s anti-immigrant rhetoric is “diametrically opposed to the core values of entrepreneurship.”

The 46-year-old firm, formerly known as Charles River Ventures, also said that it would begin paying for the US visas of entrepreneurs it backs.

In its blog post announcing the stance, headlined “F*ck Trump,” CRV cited its own immigrant roots, noting that its nine investment partners hail from seven different countries and speak eight languages. The firm’s homepage was given over to the headline in big white type against a red backdrop, with a link to its statement.<snip>
