Bradley Tusk has carved an unique path in the VC financial investment landscape: A long time political and interactions operative, he has actually built a track record for Tusk Ventures by pursuing highly controlled industries, instead of shying away from them.

Whether it is ride-hailing, sports betting, cannabis or myriad other controlled sectors, Tusk takes the method that laws are eventually flexible, and if a service is popular, its users can set in motion to impact modification.

Offered his unique point of view, it was excellent to have him join us today in an Additional Crunch Live call– our new initiative here at TechCrunch to bring tech-world thought leaders right to your screens.

In our conversation, Tusk discussed edtech, telemedicine, marijuana, mobile voting, biotech, pandemics and the future of managed markets in this craven economic environment. We have actually transcribed a handful of his answers to our and our readers’ concerns and have embedded the entire video below the fold.

We have actually edited his written answers for clarity and brevity.
