Dave Bell

Dave Bell has been involved in mobile entertainment and media since consumers began to purchase their first mobile handsets in the mid-1990s. Bell currently serves as a General Partner at Infinite Channel, a firm that advises and makes micro-investments in interesting web and mobile start-ups focusing on disruptive consumer technologies.

Prior to Infinite Channel, Bell was a founding member of Playphone and senior vice president of business development, where he spearheaded the company’s content programming strategy and managed its business-to-business efforts. While at PlayPhone, Bell secured relationships to distribute content for and power mobile destinations on behalf of some of the world’s top media companies including ABC, RealNetworks, Vivendi Universal, Konami, I-Play, SEGA, Bandai, Square Enix, Gameloft and many others.

Bell founded Chasma, one of the first publishers of branded, top-tier mobile games in North America in 1999. Under Bell’s leadership as chief executive officer, Chasma pioneered innovative content for the CDMA BREW platform as one of QUALCOMM’s first ten content partners. Before Chasmaa’s sale to Kayak Interactive in 2005, the company had raised two rounds of venture capital from institutional and angel investors and launched more than a dozen branded and original products on hundreds of mobile devices.

Bell has been a guest lecturer at the MIT Sloan School of Management and has been a featured participant at QUALCOMM’s BREW Developers Conference, CTIA Wireless, the Mobile Entertainment Summit and E3. He has been profiled in Fortune Magazine, Inc. Magazine, Newsweek, the Boston Globe, Mass High Tech and CNNMoney. He was also included in the business management book Internet Technology and You: Thriving in the Internet Age, published by McGraw-Hill.
