Chuck Templeton is a long-time entrepreneur and has always had a deep passion for helping early-stage and emerging companies across many different verticals. Inspired by the promise of building a better future for his daughters, he has focused on using business innovations to find solutions to the most urgent environmental and societal problems facing mankind today.
Chuck joined S2G Ventures because of a deep-rooted belief that it holds a unique opportunity to help reimagine a food system to move from cheap calories to cheap nutrition, while also mitigating and adapting to climate change. A healthy and sustainable food system could both dramatically reduce our health care costs and slow and even help reverse climate change. Because of his experience as an entrepreneur, he focuses his work there on supporting portfolio companies in operations, sales, and marketing. He loves problem solving with the portfolio, helping them reach their potential. As an ultra runner and former Army Ranger, Chuck is well-versed about the importance of healthy, nutritious food for human performance. And as a father and a citizen, he has made it his life's mission to help democratize food so that everyone has equal access to the nutrition they need to reach their physical and mental potential in life.
