Johnnie Yu (俞润中)
Consumer VC in New York, he/him
Hi, I’m Johnnie Yu , a twenty-something year old consumer investor, brand nerd, and futurist currently living and working in New York City. I invest at Listen by day and sometimes create content by night.
My (investing-related) interests are in early-stage consumer brands that redefine category boundaries and rewrite conventional playbooks, especially brands that create products and services for previously underrepresented demographics.
Outside of investing, you can find my alter ego photographing and creating with emerging artists and fashion labels. I also run an AAPI-focused consumer syndicate, Cult-Classic, and occasionally mentor consumer brands on creative production and content strategy through Techstars and XRC Ventures.
