BRENDAN O'CONNOR, associate director

Brendan brings deep health care consulting, project management and advocacy experience to the Quantified Ventures team, as well as a demonstrated track record of developing and advancing strategic relationships among parties with differing priorities – a necessity in the world of impact investing.

Prior to joining Quantified Ventures, he was an Associate at Tauzin Consultants, where he supported a range of clients, from Fortune 500 to pre-revenue startups, in the health care, communications, and energy sectors through strategic advocacy, business development, fundraising, targeted marketing initiatives and the implementation of lean principles. While at Tauzin Consultants, Brendan helped plan and design a spin off business accelerator and fund that would support promising early stage health care companies. Before joining Tauzin Consultants, Brendan advanced the legislative priorities for health care clients with former Congressman Bill Brewster’s government-relations firm, Capitol Hill Consulting Group. In 2012, Brendan co-founded Raise Your City, a social venture that raised significant funding for DC-based nonprofits by lowering barriers for young DC residents to engage directly in local philanthropic initiatives and events.

A North Carolina native, Brendan earned his B.A. in International Studies from Elon University.

Music is his thing.
