Casey Taylor

VP of Network, Digital Currency Group


Before joining DCG, Casey served as the Director of Community at Female Founders Fund, an early-stage venture firm that invests in promising, women-led companies. In this role she managed post-investment of a fast growing portfolio, in addition to overseeing the firm’s own communications, brand strategy, Expert Network, partnerships, college scout program, and 40+ annual events.

Prior to joining the team at Female Founders Fund (or F3 for short), she maintained a 50K+ member community at the world’s largest Meetup group, NY Tech Meetup. As the keeper of a massive pipeline of applicants, she vetted and coached 200+ tech demos per year for the organization’s popular monthly demo event. Additional responsibilities spanned from forum moderation, to crafting tech policy advocacy, and consulting on workforce development projects with the NYCEDC and Mayor’s office.

Having found her way to the startup industry from an untraditional path, Casey cares deeply about mentorship and distributing opportunity to those who are commonly overlooked. At Goddard College she customized an Interdisciplinary BA in Communications to focus on the intersection between technology, sociology, gender studies, and sustainability.
