Silicon Valley is Shamelessly Ageist

Last week, 52-year-old entrepreneur Jeff Pulver addressed the American Enterprise Institute and confirmed (see 43:00 on the video) what we’ve all suspected: Silicon Valley is blatantly, shamelessly ageist.

The money quote, according to the Washington Post:

I was in Silicon Valley two years ago meeting a partner of one of the most famous VCs in the world and when he told me to my face, told me: “Jeff, look, you’re not 25 years old having just left Facebook as a product manager, because if you were I have $5 million for you.” He looked at me and said I was worthless.
