About Me

Chad Jones is a socially conscious entrepreneur and venture investor with more than 20 years’ experience in strategy and development. He splits his time as an investor, board member and operational executive across a wide spectrum of companies including technology, beverage, construction fastening and sporting goods. Mr. Jones is a thought leader in many areas including the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud, virtualization and alternative energy technologies. His ability to understand nuanced technology combined with an uncanny sense of market needs drive a unique perspective. He is able to shape powerful product and business strategies that capitalize on differentiated value, and then articulate this value through enlightened positioning and thought leadership. His unique vision takes big ideas from inception through execution resulting in highly profitable outcomes including six exits to companies such as Microsoft, VMware and Intel. As an investor, Mr. Jones has chosen passions near to his heart (beer, wine, etc.) as well as ones that create better outcomes for the planet (alternative energy, wireless electricity, etc.). He has traveled the planet discussing a vision for a better world through the non-intuitive use of converging technologies. Mr. Jones is currently Chief Strategy Officer for Deep Information Sciences, serves on multiple boards, and runs his investment fund, Plesso Ventures, Inc., as its CEO. In his free time, he enjoys beach volleyball, wake boarding, heli-skiing, and finding the next great idea that transforms businesses and lives.
