His breadth masks his age, a source of surprise to some. (“I had no idea he was under 40,” said Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi.) Stad prides himself on “being creative in a traditionally uncreative industry,” which is paying off as his decade-old Dragoneer punches above its weight, investing alongside far more established firms.
