Photographs posted to Twitter by Steve Jurvetson seem to suggest that past accusations regarding his conduct with women haven’t hurt his relationship with Google cofounder Sergey Brin.
On Saturday evening, Jurvetson’s Twitter page showed photos of a group of people aboard the Maltese Falcon, one of the world’s tallest sailing vessels. According to Jurvetson’s post, among those with him were Brin and two women, Genevieve Lydstone and Khaliya, who according to their LinkedIn pages have both cofounded companies.
In November, Jurvetson departed Draper Fisher Jurvetson (DFJ), one of the tech sector’s best-known VC firms, after an investigation found “a pattern of dishonesty with women,” according to a report in Recode.
Early reports indicated DFJ had booted Jurvetson, while his side claimed his exit had been reached through a mutual agreement. Then came accusations that Jurvetson had thrown wild sex parties and had behaved inappropriately, which he and many others close to DFJ disputed.
Jurvetson’s post on Saturday comes in contrast to other prominent men recently accused of sexual misconduct, many of whom have shunned public attention.
Brin was not immediately available for comment about the circumstances of the photo and his relationship with Jurvetson, and Google did not respond to questions from Business Insider.
