Rob Coneybeer

Rob started his career as an aerospace engineer and automotive engine tester, then became an investor in early stage technology companies. He co-founded Shasta Ventures in 2005. 

Rob is looking to work with entrepreneurs who are creating disruptive new approaches to mobile and networked devices, as well as technology applications that leverage novel infrastructure technologies in creative ways. He is particularly interested in high-risk startups that are rapidly scalable, impact the lives of millions of people and connect the “real world” to the Internet, whether via smart phones, low-cost sensors, or other innovative new devices. He focuses on smartphone-based businesses, collaborative consumption and The Internet of Things. His current companies include Nest, Mocana and Relay Rides.
