Brett Bolkowy


I've worked on a variety of projects straddling the disparate worlds of writing and tech entrepreneurship. I worked on research and editorial for the career strategy book The Start-Up of You by Ben Casnocha and Reid Hoffman and did marketing and publicity post-publication. I then did the same for the corporate management book The Alliance by Ben, Reid and Chris Yeh. I also assisted with adapting the books for the corporate consultancy created based on the books. I also worked on the book adaptation of the CS183C "Blitzscaling" course taught by Reid and Chris.

When Ben became Reid Hoffman's Chief of Staff, I worked with a small group of people on a variety of personal, professional and philanthropic projects for Reid. I have also worked with Ben Casnocha and Rahim Fazal while they created new ventures and helped both of them with personal branding.

More recently, I helped with the launch of Village Global, a venture capital firm co-founded by Ben Casnocha and Erik Torenberg. I continue to be involved with the firm in a variety of ways, including helping with research, web and graphic design, as well as producing the Venture Stories podcast.

I also have a strong interest in design, particularly UX.
