If the producers of the next World s Most Interesting Man in the World commercial were looking for a Silicon Valley type, a prime candidate might be Bradley Tusk, a 42-year-old New Yorker who advises companies such as FanDuel and Tesla that are disrupting highly regulated industries.

Tusk made his bones in Silicon Valley through advising Uber, which paid him in equity for his services while still a Series A company, dramatically boosting Tusk s net worth he says he hasn t sold any , and in the process, creating a model for his newest firm, Tusk Ventures.

Right now, Tusk Ventures, founded less than a year ago, has a dozen clients.

Most of the 30 staffers who work at the company come out of politics at high levels, says Tusk, and each helps two clients navigate their respectively regulatory waters, such as keeping them up to date with a curated email that they receive by 7 a.m. every morning.

Tusk is raising a venture fund to ramp up his investing activities, though he declined to speak about any specifics at a dinner with reporters earlier this week.

Tusk was formerly Michael Bloomberg s campaign manager, helping him to get elected to an unprecedented third term as the mayor of New York City after convincing the New York City Council to extend the role s term limits.
