Is this even really such a specific issue? Good businesspeople will not throw away enormous potential value, regardless of its origins, less competent businesspeople will make the less competent judgements of ageism, racism, sexism etc. at the cost of their business.

There are a lot of crappy businesspeople willing to toss the plasticity of young employees, and the experience of older employees away; these are the people we hopefully aren't giving venture funds until they figure things out.
