Alex Chao

“Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.” – Will Rogers


Alex joined Volition in 2020 and is responsible for sourcing and providing due diligence on new investment opportunities within growth-stage software and tech-enabled service businesses.

  • Alex graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Dartmouth in 2020 and in his senior year won the Louis Morton Memorial Prize in American History.
  • In 2019 Alex interned at DBO Partners, a tech-focused investment banking firm in San Francisco.
  • An avid tennis player, Alex co-captained his championship high school team. He’s still hoping that wasn’t the pinnacle of his tennis career.
  • When he was ten, Alex adopted the Pittsburgh Steelers as his team — because he thought they had the coolest logo. He became a lifelong fan when they won the Super Bowl that year. He has never been to Pittsburgh.
  • Alex loves foreign travel, the outdoors, and being with his family and friends.
Grow with Passion

“I believe that passion is just as important as a good idea or a technical business plan. I love that Volition puts such a high value on the people aspects of investing.”
