Bio
When I was graduating college, a mentor told me to find a job that didn't feel like a job. Venture Capital is that job for me. I wake up every day excited to work with amazing founders. Chad Byers is co-founder & General Partner at Susa Ventures, where he focuses on investments in marketplaces, fintech, and healthcare. Chad led Susa's investments in Robinhood, Andela, Newfront Insurance and Stord. Raised in Silicon Valley, Chad was exposed to entrepreneurship and venture capital at an early age. He was named to the Forbes 30 Under 30 for VC in 2015. Prior to Susa Ventures, Chad was the senior director of platform at Integrate.com and held various marketing and product roles at Silver Spring Networks, Bloom Energy, and Electronic Arts. Chad chased his love for skiing, mountains, and the outdoors to Boulder, Colorado where he mostly did those things but also received a bachelor's degree in Environmental Science.
