Chuck Templeton

Managing Director

Chuck Templeton is a long-time entrepreneur who has a deep passion for helping early-stage and emerging entrepreneurs and companies scale their businesses. With his operating experience as the founder of OpenTable, first Chairman of GrubHub and early stage advisor for several other startups, and being Inspired by the promise of building a better future for his daughters, he is focused on helping entrepreneurs use their business innovations to find solutions to the most urgent environmental and societal problems facing humanity today.

Chuck joined S2G Ventures because of a deep-rooted belief that it holds a unique opportunity to help reimagine our food system to move from cheap calories to cheap nutrition, while also mitigating and adapting to climate change. He believes a healthy and sustainable food system could dramatically reduce our health care costs while regenerative ag practices can help reverse climate change. Due to his experience as an entrepreneur, he focuses on supporting portfolio companies in leadership, operations, sales, marketing and team building. He loves problem solving with the portfolio and helping each entrepreneur reach their true potential. As an ultra-runner and former Army Ranger, Chuck is well-versed about the importance of healthy, nutritious food for maximum mental and physical performance, and as a father, citizen and business person, he believes the only solution that makes sense is one with nutrient dense, affordable, sustainable and climate stabilizing food.
