This Q&A Session has now ended but
Andy may still answer new questions
Hi everyone! I'm Andy and I'm an investor at Social Capital based in Palo Alto, CA. Social Capital is a partnership of philanthropists, technologists and capitalists utilizing venture capital as a force to create value and change on a global scale.
Previously, I ran finance and built out the analytics for OMGPOP, a VC backed social gaming startup. We sold the company to Zynga in March 2012 for $180M.
Before OMGPOP, I began my career with IBM's M&A team buying software companies ranging from $20M - $10B+ valuations. I'm passionate about startups, especially ones focused on health and data.
Ask me anything!
