Founding partner at FM Capital
Chase is the founding partner at FM Capital, a sector-focused venture fund with an AUM of over $300M. Chase’s primary responsibilities are investment deal-structure, fundraising, and general fund leadership and direction. Chase has been involved in over fifty direct investments and has served on more than twenty boards.
Previously, Chase founded MarketQuiz, a technology platform that pioneered multi-channel marketing in the automotive dealership space. During his tenure, Chase drove the rapid growth of the company, working with thousands of automotive dealerships across North America over an eight-year period. The company was acquired by SCI-Marketview in 2009.
Before MarketQuiz, Chase was a principal at Fraser Industries, a family business and the largest wooden pallet manufacturer and recycler in North America at the time. The company went public in 1997, and was then later acquired by IFCO, a global supply-chain and logistics organization. Following a roll-up investment strategy, Chase was involved in the separate acquisitions of over a dozen businesses.
Chase graduated from The University of Texas at Austin, is married with two children, and currently resides in Boulder, Colorado.
