"Every startup wants to change the world. But the ones who truly do know something the others don't: how to make government and regulation work for them. As startups use technology to shape the way we live, work, and learn, they're taking on challenges in sectors like healthcare, infrastructure, and education, where failure is far more consequential than a humorous chat with Siri or the wrong shoes showing up on your doorstep. These startups inevitably have to face governments responsible for protecting citizens through regulation. Love it or hate it, we're entering the next era of the digital revolution: the Regulatory Era. The big winners in this era--in terms of both impact and financial return--will need a skillset you won't learn in business school or from most startup incubators: how to scale a business in an industry deeply intertwined with government. Here, for the first time, is the playbook on how to win this regulatory era. "Regulatory hacking" might sound like shorthand for "cutting through red tape," but it's really about finding a creative, strategic approach to navigating complex markets. Evan Burfield, cofounder of 1776, a Washington, DC-based venture capital firm and incubator specializing in regulated industries, has worked at the intersection of startups and government for over two decades. As an experienced entrepreneur and investor in dozens of startups operating in complex industries, Burfield has coached startups on how to understand, adapt to, and influence government regulation. Now, in Regulatory Hacking, he draws on that expertise and real startup success stories to show you how to do the same. For instance, you'll learn how... *AirBnB rallied a grassroots movement to vote No on San Francisco's Prop F, which would have restricted its business in the city. *HopSkipDrive overcame safety concerns about its kids' ridesharing service by working with state government to build trust into its platform. *23andMe survived the FDA's order to stop selling its genetic testing kits by building trusted relationships with scientists who could influence the federal regulatory community. Through his fascinating case studies and interviews with startup founders, Burfield shows you how to build a compelling narrative for your startup, use it to build a grassroots movement to impact regulation, and develop influence to overcome entrenched relationships between incumbents and governments. These are just some of the tools in the book that you'll need to win the next frontier of innovation"--
