Chase Holmes

Director, Partnership Network

My favorite part about working with portfolio companies and executives is

Partnering with leaders who are building iconic companies and leaving every conversation inspired about the future.

How do you view your role with portfolio companies?

Being a connector, with the goal being to facilitate meaningful relationships and partnerships between founders and industry leaders.

I get excited by companies where the founders ….

Have a clear vision, can’t hide their enthusiasm for what they’re building and why it’s important, and are thoughtful about the values they’ll rely on to guide their decision-making along the way.

How did your family shape your views on work?

From an early age, my mom instilled in me the importance of being intentional when deciding what you want to do and then committing to giving it everything you have. Our conversations were formative, but the real inspiration came from seeing the ongoing effort she put into mastering her craft while being an incredible parent.

Favorite quote or saying?

If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.
- African Proverb

What is your favorite hobby outside of work?

Road biking throughout the Bay Area. The hills are humbling and the views never get old.

What makes Redpoint unique?

The genuine energy everyone has for working as a team to support entrepreneurs and put them in the best possible position to succeed.

The best part of my job is….

Supporting teams as they take on seemingly impossible problems with a shared sense of purpose and optimism.

What is your favorite book / who is your favorite author?

Walter Isaacson's Leonardo da Vinci. It’s a powerful story about what a curious mind can accomplish and provides a unique perspective on the relationship between art and science.

If you could take a road trip with anyone, who would it be?

Michelle and Barack Obama. Their stories, wisdom, and witty banter would make for a memorable trip (and hopefully we’d stay friends!)
