Andrew is the Founder and Managing Partner of Broadscale, an investment firm that he launched in 2012. Broadscale works with leading corporations, family offices, and other strategic partners to invest in and commercialize the most promising market-ready innovations focused on the energy transition, advanced transportation, and sustainable technologies generally. Broadscale differentiates itself by both: (1) sourcing strategic investments, partnerships, and acquisitions for its Corporate Network, whose members have included Duke Energy, Engie, Equinor, General Electric, Johnson Controls, National Grid, Panasonic, and Shell and (2) acting as a general partner for a network of family offices and high-net-worth individual limited partners, with which it has made a dozen venture and growth equity investments. Andrew’s deep relationships with corporate leaders and reputation as a pioneer in sustainable business have enabled him and Broadscale to invest in preeminent sustainable technology companies such as Blink Charging, Generate Capital, Getaround, Proterra, Revel, and Via Transportation. Andrew has recently served as an advisor to Obvious Ventures as well as on the boards of two technology companies, Blink Charging (NASDAQ: BLNK) and Akerna Corp.
