Bio

Roy Bahat is the head of Bloomberg Beta, a #foundersfirst early-stage venture firm backed by Bloomberg L.P. that invests in startups making work better, with a focus on machine intelligence. Bloomberg Beta has an unusual model for a venture fund. It invests for financial return and strives to work in the same new ways as startups -- transparent (with its full operating manual open sourced), driven by data (with a program to statistically predict who will start companies in the future), and highly dependent on trust.

He hosts a daily video show with practical tips about dilemmas at work called #thisisnotadvice.

Roy was a commissioner on the California Governor's Future of Work Commission (following work he did with think-tank New America to understand the 10-20 year future of work and automation in America). He was named one of Fast Company’s Most Creative People in Business, has served in government, and led a non-profit in addition to his work at established corporations and day zero startups. He also serves on the faculty at U.C. Berkeley where he teaches about media at the Haas School of Business. He serves on the board or as an advisor to several non-profits including Stanford's Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society, and the Economic Security Project. Roy graduated from Harvard College, where he ran the student public service nonprofit. He was a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University.
