After almost a decade of working in finance and traveling around the world, Christopher Callahan (“Chris”) returned to Palm Beach to start two ventures: Surfr App and Startup Palm Beach. It is Chris’ goal to draw entrepreneurs to the West Palm Beach area, to foster a community of like-minded, ambitious individuals who inspire one another and stimulate the local economy through various enterprises. Chris’ experience as an analyst at Bear Stearns, Citigroup and Geneva Equities lend him tools to look at companies with an analytical eye. After successfully launching and operating a pop-up incubator, Chris wanted to catalyze more investment for early stage companies. Chris currently owns and operates two startups and sits on the Board of MIT Enterprise Forum of South Florida and Gold Coast Venture Capital Association.
