  • About Me
    Chad Petterson has spent most of his career leading and funding start-up companies, ministries and socially-focused businesses. After graduating from the Michigan Business School as the University of Michigan's top scholar-athlete, Chad started his career in the M&A Department at Morgan Stanley in New York City. This eventually led to a specific focus on investing in seed-, early- and growth-stage companies and positions at the venture capital firms of Capital Resource Partners in Boston and NanoHoldings in Connecticut.

    Chad has also sat of the other side of the table as an entrepreneur, initiating and leading the development of multiple businesses and ministries including:

    iverCity (pronounced like "diversity") - a California-based technology company focused on the specific technology needs of the poor, uneducated and illiterate

    Wall Street Exodus - a unique business development/ministry/television and film project focused on serving the poor in NYC, Bridgeport, and Honduras

    Thousand Fold Films - a television and film production company focused on the transformation of lives through the creation and distribution of compelling, inspirational and entertaining media products

    Receiving Jesus - a football camp for fatherless boys in innercity Nashville

    IMPACT - a faith-based limited-contact football league aimed at reducing head trauma in young athletes

    Lacrosse The Villages - a faith-based program that introduces the game of lacrosse to children in small villages across the globe, starting in Teupasenti, Honduras

    Chad is currently working on producing a new television show about forgiveness (titled "Unspoken") in partnership with Revolution Pictures, developing the Receiving Jesus and IMPACT football ministries, starting up the Lacrosse The Villages lacrosse ministry, coaching multiple football and lacrosse teams, and spending as much time as he can with his wife and three kids.
