Occupation: Investor and Entrepreneur
Based in: New York
Last Education: Harvard Business School
Soft-spoken, and with a preference to stay behind-the-scenes, this Harvard Business School graduate is not your usual image of a hard-charging investor or entrepreneur. But for the past ten years, Chun has been involved in building, investing, and advising some of the largest and fastest-growing technology-enabled businesses in the world. As a principal, and one of the business service leaders at Accretive, this New York-based investor works alongside the founding partners of the firm with the mission of building large B2B ventures from the ground up. Chun is also involved in investing, and managing, their portfolio of high-growth insurance, healthcare, and education companies. Before working at Accretive, Patrick honed his chops at some of the largest names in business, including time at Bain Capital Ventures (investing), Microsoft (technology), and McKinsey (consulting).
Chun’s casual way of engaging others, and his collaborative style also belies his keen sense of leadership. Beyond the high impact he’s had in the world of tech investments, the Korean-American was one of the first Asian student body presidents at Harvard Business School. With his trio of Harvard degrees and his active involvement in the aggressive New York entrepreneurial scene, Chun is one to watch.
