Tom Chavez

CEO, Co-FounderSuper{set}

I'm the co-founder of super{set}, a startup studio that founds, funds, and builds technology startups.

For the past 20+ years, my professional focus has centered on using data, decision science, and AI to solve hard, interesting problems. Prior to forming super{set}, I was the CEO and co-founder of Krux, a martech platform acquired by Salesforce in 2016. Before Krux, I was the CEO and co-founder of Rapt, a provider of software for media monetization acquired by Microsoft in 2008.

To date, the companies I've built have generated a 17.5x return for investors and substantial wealth for employees.To honor my amazing parents, I co-founded the Chavez Family Foundation, which invests in non-profit projects at the intersection of education, immigration, and entrepreneurship.

Born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Tom currently lives and works in San Francisco. He holds a B.A. in Computer Science and Philosophy from Harvard University and a Ph.D. in Engineering-Economic Systems and Operations Research from Stanford University,  where he was a NASA Doctoral Fellow.
