Hillary Clinton is Silicon Valley’s presidential candidate of choice.
Now technology CEOs and other major players in the industry have started to openly endorse Clinton.
On Thursday, Clinton’s campaign announced a list of endorsements from the business community – and it includes leaders at Facebook, Netflix, Airbnb, and Alphabet, the parent company of Google.
The list also includes a few high-profile venture capitalists at some of the Valley’s top firms.
Republican presumptive nominee Donald Trump appears to be deeply unpopular in the Bay Area. He received only about 9,000 votes in San Francisco in the California primary election earlier this month, for example. But at least one notable venture capitalist, Peter Thiel, is publicly supporting Trump.
Here are the technology executives who just endorsed Clinton for president:
- Sheryl Sandberg, chief operating officer of Facebook Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Alphabet Reed Hastings, founder and CEO of Netflix Drew Houston, founder and CEO of Dropbox Anne Wojcicki, CEO and cofounder of 23andMe Brook Byers, partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers John Doerr, partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers Reid Hoffman, partner at Greylock Peter Chernin, CEO of The Chernin Group Nathan Blecharczyk, cofounder and CTO of Airbnb Brian Chesky, cofounder and CEO of Airbnb Joe Gebbia, cofounder and CPO of Airbnb Irwin Jacobs, founding chairman and CEO emeritus of Qualcomm Paul Jacobs, executive chairman of Qualcomm David Karp, Founder and CEO of Tumblr Aaron Levie, cofounder and CEO of Box Mark Pincus, cofounder of Zynga Jeremy Stoppelman, CEO and cofounder of Yelp Barry Diller, chairman and senior executive of IAC and Expedia Candy Ergen, cofounder of DISH Network
Politico has the complete list, which includes some players from older, less disruptive industries, too.
