A graduate of both Georgetown and Oxford, Bettina Warburg started her career as a political scientist and public foresight researcher at a prominent Silicon Valley think tank.
She is a Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Warburg Serres Investments, an early stage venture capital fund focused on the decentralization of trade through blockchain and Web 3 technologies. Today, she has taken her skills as a researcher and scientist and is applying them toward an entrepreneurial career by co-founding a venture studio business called Animal Ventures - an investment advisory firm that builds and invests in tech startups, educates executives, and designs new ways for Fortune 500 companies to commercialize and leverage emergent technologies. These emergent opportunities include technologies such as Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, Additive Manufacturing, and Internet of Things. Animal Ventures has extensive experience in industries such as food, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, trucking, shipping, logistics, online marketplaces, and fin-tech.
Warburg is the executive producer of a Silicon Valley tech show called Tech on Politics, interviewing some of the world's most influential political operatives, entrepreneurs, government official, and the creators of some of the most exciting digital products on the market.
Warburg recently launched a new Blockchain education course called "The Basics of Blockchain." The hope is that this course will help spread the body of blockchain knowledge, inspire a new generation of entrepreneurs and get more people ready for the coming revolution.
