Quick Bio / About Me
My name is Casey Botticello, and I am an internet entrepreneur and digital marketing consultant with over a decade of experience, creating and improving internet based businesses.
I previously worked for BGR Group, a bipartisan lobbying and strategic communications firm.
I am the founder and former president of the Cryptocurrency Alliance, an independent expenditure-only committee (Super PAC) dedicated to cryptocurrency advocacy.
I have also worked at several tech startups and in real estate development.
I am a graduate of The University of Pennsylvania, where I received my B.A. in Urban Studies.
I am always working on a number of unique projects. Here are a few of the things I am currently focusing on:

- Private Equity Investing — I was an early Bitcoin investor. Since divesting most of my cryptocurrency holdings, I have invested in 25+ private equity deals, or sourced shares of privately owned companies on the secondary market. Some of these companies include Dropbox, Uber, Anaplan, Docusign, Puppet, Coursera, SoFi, Palantir, Robinhood and Pinterest.
I live in Washington, D.C., am an avid reader, and enjoy writing in my spare time.
