Man Behind “Split California Into Six States” Strips Off His Clothes

Posted on | July 23, 2014 | Comments Off

(San Jose Mercury) – Silicon Valley venture capitalist Tim Draper’s proposal to split California into six states has raised eyebrows across the country.

Some eyebrows are now being raised higher at a video in which he performs a partial striptease as he declares his support for women in technology.

The 2 1/2 minute clip shows Draper’s acceptance speech for an award he won in 2008 from Astia, a venture capital firm that invests in female-led companies.

After declaring “the sky is the limit” for companies he supports, Draper removes one article of clothing for each female-led firm in which he invested.

The striptease ends with Draper wearing only pants and singing a song he wrote called “Riskmaster.”

Steve Maviglio, co-founder of One California, a group opposed to Draper’s plan, said he thinks the video will cause viewers to question Draper’s judgment.

“He’s somebody who has a lot of time and money on his hands and is not in the mainstream of California thinking,” Maviglio said.

Roger Salazar, a communications consultant for Draper, declined to comment.
