In view of few situations that have recently come to light, we wanted to make a clear and concise statement about an issue that is extremely important to us.

We have a zero tolerance policy for inappropriate sexual behavior originating from investors, mentors or founders at 9Mile Labs. Anyone found to be in violation of this policy will be excluded from our program and events.

What constitutes inappropriate behavior? It includes “sexual harassment” or unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature that results in a hostile work environment.

It is 2016, and this should go without saying, but we’re stating this to be unambiguous about the issue.
