Chal Davidson

Director, Innovation Banking and Development

 LinkedIn Profile

I am a firm believer that invention/innovation improves the world we live in and the day you stop learning is the day that you die.  With this mindset I am excited to be working to pushing the development of larger scale innovation ecosystems at Xinova.

Previously I have founded a variety of startups including Supercritical Technologies, where I served at one time or another at both the CEO and CTO. I was the Chief of Staff in the Office of the Chief Technology Officer at Intellectual Ventures, where I worked with CTO and Co-Founder Edward Jung to manage strategic business projects.  In this regard, I am excited to reunite with Edward to continue with the development of the open innovation vision.

I joined Intellectual Ventures as an Engineer Manager at TerraPower, an IV spinoff that promotes a next-generation nuclear reactor design. Prior to that, I provided oversight and planning for the refit of nuclear-propulsion vessels as Resident Engineer for Bechtel Marine Propulsion Corporation at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard. I have also led research and development of advanced energy conversion systems as Senior Engineer at Lockheed Martin, and completed the prestigious Lockheed Martin Engineering Leadership Development Program.

In addition to my work in engineering, I have owned, managed, and invested in  several businesses, including a brewery, multiple restaurants, and a custom-home construction company. I hold a B.S. from Oregon State University and an M.S. from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, both in nuclear engineering, as well as an MBA from the University of Washington. I am also a Licensed Professional Engineer in the States of New York, Oregon, and Washington.  I love building things, playing in the snow or on the water, and have a Shih-Tzu.
