Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer of Fiscal Note Gerald Yao Helps Bring Transparency to Trade Show Planning with Ellivent

San Diego, California, Oct 10, 2019 – Today, Ellivent announced that Gerald Yao is joining the Ellivent Advisory Board. Yao is a co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer of FiscalNote, a global information services company that uses emerging technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning, and natural language processing to empower people and organizations with the right information at the right time. By organizing open data, FiscalNote is using that data to solve some of the world’s largest challenges in law, risk, and compliance.

We built FiscalNote around products that our customers would love.” said Yao. “I see that same passion in Ellivent as they try to improve how marketing teams plan and get value from the trade shows they attend.

When Greg Crisci, CEO of Ellivent, started his prior company, he attended a prominent startup accelerator in Silicon Valley where he met Yao. Since that time, Greg sold his startup to a large publicly-traded company and FiscalNote now spans 18 countries with over 400 employees and provides data to over 5,00 customers.

When I started Ellivent, I knew I wanted to bring Gerald onto our advisory board. Addressing the challenge of organizing the scattered bits of trade show information to make it easier for marketers to plan and execute great events, is similar to what Gerald has already done for industry with government data in FiscalNote.
