Andrew has been working with startups for over 20 years both as an entrepreneur and an investor. Most recently, he served as the founding CEO of WegoWise, a building efficiency analytics platform that has defined building performance standards for the multi-family housing industry.  With WegoWise, he saw an opportunity to leverage the power of IT into the efficiency market and offer an encompassing data platform to integrate building performance with sustainable real estate management practices.  WegoWise has since been acquired by AppFolio (NASDAQ: APPF)

He is also a venture capitalist and has invested, monitored or served on the boards of portfolio companies including Zipcar (IPO and now a division of Avis Budget Group (NASDAQ: CAR)), Acelero Learning, SelecTech, CASTion (acquired by ThermoEnergy), TracRac (acquired by a PE firm), and geoVue (acquired by Versata).  In his investing career, Andrew collaborates with companies built around innovative business models that are both financially successful and address societal challenges.

Andrew graduated from Johns Hopkins with a B.S. in Materials Science and Engineering.  He then traded the Baltimore humidity for the Boston cold and received his S.M. and Ph.D. from MIT where his research focused on materials processing and technology commercialization.
