Description

About our Guest Investor:

Virginie Raphael is a Principal and early-stage investor at Tusk Ventures where she brings a deep understanding and expertise in managing the constantly evolving policy and media landscape startups face. Virginie is responsible for sourcing early-stage investment opportunities in highly regulated industries, evaluating potential new and follow on investments, and executing transactions. She also oversees the Fund’s operations and supports Tusk’s portfolio companies by leveraging the firm’s communications and regulatory and political experts. Prior to Tusk, Virginie was a Vice President in Public Finance at Lehman Brothers/Barclays Capital.

About Tusk Ventures: Tusk Ventures is one-part venture capital firm, one-part political strategy firm that deploys both capital and political expertise to help startups break through regulatory barriers and operate at full speed. We take on the entrenched interests and politicians trying to stifle innovation and competition so our portfolio companies don’t have to. Disrupting any industry also means disrupting the political status quo. Our job is to make that happen. We got our start as Uber’s first political advisory firm back in 2011 and since then, have worked with over 30 different startups on a wide variety of issues – communications, legislation, regulations, grassroots organizing, opposition research, partnerships, procurement – at every level of government and virtually every market in the United States. And for white spaces like crypto, drones, cannabis and autonomous, figuring out a regulatory structure that works for you – and getting that structure enacted in law – is equally critical.

Breakfast will be served.
