Michael Chasen: Close to the Decision-Makers

By Jeff Nyveen  |  September 9, 2013

The first company of which I was founder and CEO was a computer consulting business in a small town in Connecticut. Because this was during high school, I was also the CFO, CRO, CTO and every other conceivable acronym in the C-Suite lexicon, as well as administrative assistant (to myself). Aside from that, I have never started a company in a city other than Washington D.C. And based on my experience with the two I have founded here, I have no intention of breaking that pattern. Of course I’m hardly the only one who sees the benefits of DC. It is #2 on the Forbes countdown of “tech capitals to watch” worldwide. (Sadly, my Connecticut hometown did not make the list this year.)
