Karl Frisch Associates (KFA) was a for-profit consulting firm owned and operated by left-of-center activist and Democratic operative Karl Frisch that existed from 2014 to 2015.  KFA’s clients included the New Venture Fund (NVF), the largest nonprofit managed by the left-of-center “dark money” consulting company Arabella Advisors.  
Frisch is a longtime Democratic Party operative with experience working at left-of-center organizations such as Allied Progress, Media Matters, and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC).    
Karl Frisch founded Karl Frisch Associates in the summer of 2014 after working as a partner at Bullfight Strategies, a left-of-center communications firm founded by Eric Burns, the former president of left-of-center Media Matters for America. 
KFA took on the left-of-center “dark money” organization New Venture Fund (NVF), the largest nonprofit managed by Arabella Advisors, as a client shortly after its founding.  Frisch’s relationship developed with NVF in this period “set the stage” for Frisch to found the left-of-center Allied Progress (also a project of the New Venture Fund) in August 2015.  
KFA’s most recent public records with the District of Columbia Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs are from 2015.  KFA’s business license expired on July 1, 2016.   During its one year of operations, KFA reportedly had 20 employees with an annual revenue of $3,000,000. 
Frisch has many associations with left-of-center nonprofits and the Democratic Party. Frisch was co-chair of President Joe Biden’s Virginia LGBTQ+ Leadership Council during the 2020 presidential campaign; founded of the left-of-center Allied Progress; worked as communications director and senior fellow with Media Matters and as national press secretary for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC);  and was named in a plan for the development of a communications hub to support the left-of-center Wyss Foundation.
