• RE: ANDREW CC: LIFE

    HI — I'M ANDREW!

    I enjoy working on problems that require both an understanding of the technical details, and appreciation for drawing connections at a higher-level. I've tried to look for unique experiences that satisfy this. From working on post-2008 capital and liquidity problems facing the global financial system, increasing funding to early stage science research at a tech startup, to most recently, defining what alternative assets for science means. I'm inspired by cities, and try to find opportunities to explore as many as I can in my free time. I currently am based in Asia — splitting my time across Hong Kong and Singapore.

    Boundary Impact Ventures

    Investor | nyc, usa

    Boundary Impact Ventures is a platform that enables investing in scientific alternative assets.

       

    The platform targets projects with non-traditional risk-profiles that often blur the line between traditional VC financing and late stage grant funding. By blurring the line between traditional philanthropy and investments and alternative asset structures, innovations can be catalyzed, that otherwise would not exist under current funding norms.

     

    I was an early investor and advisor.
