The digital revolution has undeniably changed our lives in incredible ways… except where it hasn’t. True, we’re more connected than before, but when you think to the last time you visited the doctor, your kids’ classrooms, or lined up to vote, it can seem like we might as well still be in the 1980s.

Now, that’s starting to change. In his new book, Regulatory Hacking, Evan Burfield, cofounder of 1776 explores through case studies and expert interviews how the startups finding success in these heavily regulated industries understand something most others don’t: how to make government and regulation work for them.
Join 1776 for the Washington, DC, launch event for the book. Opening remarks will begin at 7pm by Jennifer Maher, CEO of 1776. Following those, Evan will take the stage about his findings in the book and how it relates to some of the larger tech trends today during a fireside chat with Kim Hart, Managing Editor at Axios and longtime journalists reporting at the center of technology and government. There will also be drinks, networking, and a book signing.

Whether you are tech CEO, policymaker, lawyer, entrepreneur, lobbyist, or an everyday professional looking to understand how game changing technologies are going to scale in regulated markets, join us for this discussion and chance to connect with others asking the same question!

Tickets ($20 here) includes copy of book. Drinks and light snacks will be provided.
