TheBridge Profile: Kara Calvert

Franklin Square Group Kara Calvert was profiled by for its profile series of leaders in Washington and Silicon Valley.

During the interview, Calvert talked about how Franklin Square Group bridges the gap between politics and tech/innovation and regulation.

This question perfectly sums up what we strive to do at Franklin Square. We were the first lobbying firm in Washington DC established with the goal of bridging the gap between Silicon Valley and Washington DC,” she said. “Eleven years later, we represent the world’s most successful technology companies and startups, and we are still focused exclusively on how to help policy makers understand the culture, values, and key issues that drive innovation across the U.S. We understand and advocate on issues that are core to the technology industry, as well as issues that sit at the intersection of traditional industry and innovation. As a bipartisan firm, we also provide strategic guidance and thoughtful intel to our clients on the political nuances of an issue.
