Alumni Feature: Christopher Deutsch ’93

Christopher Deutsch has spent over 20 years investing in and working with early-stage startups in ecommerce, enterprise software, social media and consumer internet.  He has been founder, co-founder or founding team member of numerous angel and VC-backed ventures where his responsibilities have included marketing, product development, fundraising, business development and M&A.  After graduating from Roycemore in 1993, Chris received his BA in Economics from Vassar College, where he played varsity lacrosse, basketball and rugby.

Roycemore was much more for me than just a series of challenging courses, competitive teams, brilliant teachers, dedicated coaches, extravagant Palio performances, and clandestine trips to D&D Dogs between periods. Roycemore was, and continues to be, a vibrant, stimulating and diverse community with a wide range of subjects, activities and sports to explore. Not to mention, January Short Term, which I’d look forward to every year. Whether it was living with a French family in Paris, winter ecology and hiking with Mr. Spica in Wisconsin, recreating Normandy’s D-Day invasion, or learning how to run a snowboard shop as an independent study on entrepreneurship, I was able to pique interests, gain international exposure and build lifelong memories.
