Andrew F. Chen

I love building companies and I love building products. I'm a former strategy consultant turned entrepreneur turned technology enthusiast. When I was a kid, I owned a ton of legos.

I've helped build things for HP, eBay, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Merck, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Unilever, SABMiller, Barclays, GM, Dentsu, Accenture, and many other companies.

I built SnapItTo.Me into my own company. And it failed wonderfully.

I've helped Mayor Mike Bloomberg build the technology and media industry in NYC.

I love New York Tech.

I am a Founder Institute Fellow, a Sandbox Network member and an Echoing Green Finalist.

I've lived and worked in Accra, Frankfurt, Johannesburg, London, Nairobi, Namibia, San Francisco, Tokyo and Zambia.

I currently live in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

I am married to the wonderful Hanna Y. Kim.
