In 2018, 80% of all US venture capital was invested across only three states: California, New York, and Massachusetts. With Reverb Network, Devin Walsh is working to correct this misalignment between risk capital and talent across the US.

During this session, she will discuss some of the underlying causes for this mismatch, the impacts of COVID-19 on venture capital and entrepreneurship, and how Reverb is working to democratize access to the tools required for all founders to succeed. She will also talk about her work at the Jersey Shore, which she views as an emergent tech hub.
