Announcing: Technology & Entrepreneurship Fellow Joins CEI Staff

September 12, 2011

Washington, DC, September 12, 2011 – The Competitive Enterprise Institute is pleased to announce that entrepreneur, venture capitalist, and columnist Bill Frezza has joined CEI as a Fellow in Technology and Entrepreneurship.

Mr. Frezza is currently a Venture Partner at Adams Capital Management and serves on the board of directors of several startup companies.  He is also a contributing columnist for Forbes.com, RealClearMarkets, and BioIT World.  He writes on a variety of topics, including:

  • regulatory reform
  • government “investments” in crony capitalists
  • anti-growth tax policies that preserve the status quo
  • misguided and wasteful “green” government mandates and economic initiatives
  • technology trends that have the potential to restore US economic leadership

Mr. Frezza spent three decades as an engineer, entrepreneur and venture capital investor. He holds a Master of Science degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Electrical Engineering & Computer Science, and Bachelor of Science degrees from MIT in both Electrical Engineering and Biology.

"Bill Frezza is one of the smartest, most insightful and, most of all, entertaining analysts on economic and political matters whom I know.  As his editor my weekly read of his articles is a requirement, but if I weren't his editor, I would still consider reading his work a must." - John Tamny, Editor, Forbes Opinions.

“I’ve watched Bill grow as a writer for many years and am delighted that he has joined forces with an established and well respected free market advocacy group like CEI,” -  Dr. Richard Rahn, Chairman of the Institute for Global Economic Growth and Senior Fellow at the CATO Institute.

Mr. Frezza will continue working out of Boston.
