Chrysalis was founded by David Jones in 1993, after realizing that the absence of resident venture capital managers in Mid-America represented an opportunity to find and partner with promising growth companies in the region.
With a deep understanding of emerging trends and a keen eye for promising opportunities, Chrysalis excels in identifying startups and private companies with the potential to disrupt industries and generate substantial returns. Their ability to navigate the complexities of the private markets, conduct thorough due diligence, and strategically allocate capital sets them apart as expert investors. Chrysalis has consistently demonstrated an uncanny knack for nurturing these investments, allowing them to flourish and evolve into industry leaders, making them a trusted partner for those seeking success in the private markets.
Chrysalis has worked over the years with some of the most exciting growth companies in the Midwest and South, including Appriss (Sold to Bain Capital), Advanced Academics (Sold to Devry), Tritel (Merged with Telecorp and sold to AT&T Wireless).
