I'm an associate with the New York City Investment Fund, a $120mm early stage VC founded by Henry Kravis in 1996. NYCIF is a private fund with the civic mission of strengthening and diversifying NYC's economy. I focus on investments in cleantech and fintech companies and serve as Program Manager for the FinTech Innovation Lab, an accelerator for early and growth stage fintech startups.
Prior to NYCIF, I was an analyst with The Blackstone Group in New York. I graduated from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and received a BS in Economics with concentrations in Finance and Management.
My startup-related experience includes roles with PrayWith.Me, Wikinvest.com, CauseVox.com, TapInko.com, and the Wharton Business Plan Competition. My microfinance experience includes roles with BlueOrchard Finance, Videre, and Charis Development. I blog at markdchou.com and SocentVC.com.
I'm a StartingBloc Fellow (NY '10), advisory board member for The Adventure Project, and an Eagle Scout. I am also a freelance photographer on the weekends and love sweet tea, Auburn football, and vintage watches.
