Bry, COO of Blackbird Ventures in La Jolla, was appointed to the special council by U.S. Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker.  Referring to the council, Bry said, "They look like an amazing, diverse group from all over the country: from universities, from the venture community, from workforce development.
