Andrew Chung has been a tech investor and entrepreneur for over 20 years with rare experience and success investing in sustainability and health technology. He was involved with 8 unicorns in world-positive sectors while at Khosla Ventures and Lightspeed Ventures that have created over $30 billion of market value. He founded 1955 Capital to invest in revolutionary technologies to solve the greatest global challenges of our time. 1955 was the largest venture capital firm debut in Q1 2016 and focuses on sustainability (energy, food, agriculture), education, health, and other emerging technologies.

Prior to launching 1955 Capital, Andrew was a general partner at Khosla Ventures, a venture capital firm with over $15 billion under management and the world’s largest sustainable technology venture portfolio. Andrew joined Khosla in 2011 as one of six partners leading the firm. He served as board director or helped advise more than 20 Khosla portfolio companies.

While at Khosla, Andrew also led the firm’s China activities and speaks fluent Mandarin and Cantonese Chinese. He worked with many portfolio companies to develop models for cross-border collaboration to address tough environmental challenges facing the developing world. Working closely with EcoMotors and LanzaTech, Andrew helped pioneer capital-efficient models for commercializing sustainable technologies by leveraging partnerships with Chinese industrial leaders like Baosteel, Capitol Steel, First Auto Works, and Zhongding Power to fund first production plants in China. He was also invited by the U.S. Ambassador to China, Max Baucus, as a special advisor to a historic U.S.-China presidential trade mission led by Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker and Deputy Secretary of Energy Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall.

As a thought leader in sustainable technology and U.S.-China collaboration, Andrew served on a White House roundtable on advanced manufacturing during the Obama Administration and has advised global leaders on energy policy. He has given talks on the future of food and energy, moonshot entrepreneurship, ESG investing, and U.S.-China relations at numerous global conferences. Andrew was the Founding Chair of the Cleantech Board for The Indus Entrepreneurs group (TiE), the largest global organization focused on fostering entrepreneurship, and he is a long-time advisor to the Cleantech Open (CTO), the largest cleantech accelerator in the world. He is also on the Advisory Board of Future Food-Tech, world-leading event series focusing on the most disruptive technologies transforming our food system. He has also been a guest lecturer at Harvard, Wharton, Stanford, MIT, Tsinghua (清华大学), Peking University (北京大学), and the Paulson Institute.

Previously, Andrew was an investor at Bain Capital and TL Ventures, where he supported buyout and venture investments in healthcare, software and semiconductors. Prior to that, he was a management consultant with Bain & Company in Greater China, where he worked with clients in energy, private equity, retail, and logistics. Earlier in his career, Andrew co-founded UberWorks [acq. by NWKC], an e-commerce platform incubated at Trilogy.

Andrew holds a BA in Applied Mathematics from Harvard University, graduating Phi Beta Kappa with honors as a Detur Prize recipient, and an MBA from the Wharton School of Business. Andrew currently serves on the Dean’s Advisory Cabinet at the Harvard John A. Paulson School for Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), where he sits on the Harvard Life Sciences & Innovation Task Force, and served on the Advisory Board for the Wharton Initiative for Global Environmental Leadership (IGEL).
