Tyson S. McDowell, 38, is a serial tech entrepreneur turned venture capitalist focused on positively merging humans with AI-driven technologies.
After nearly 20 years of experience in building and running companies as CEO and CTO, simultaneously, and watching the world change dramatically as a result of high-scale technologies permeating everyday life, he realized the need to scale up his own efforts to impact humanity with tech.
To that end, he launched Greatscale Ventures in 2017, a venture fund accelerating early stage tech companies to market that serve the next generation of healthier, wealthier and wiser super humans. He also is a keynote speaker, advisor, and strategic consultant to established companies that deploy AI, at scale.
While technology and business are his focus, Aviation is a core passion. Tyson is a certified private pilot with instrument, multi-engine, helicopter and various type ratings. He built and flies the airplane he commutes in, and manages historic and ex-military warbirds and fighter jets.
Tyson resides in San Diego, CA with his wife Erika and daughter Amelia, is a member of the Young President’s Organization (YPO), and is Vice Chairman of the San Diego Air and Space Museum.
