Andrew Young profile

Hello! My name is Andrew Young, life long food explorer, community builder and problem solver.

I’m currently co-founder and COO at Benolo based out of NYC. 

I am a life long explorer of food. I have spent years baking bread and tinkering with all types of fermentation which has led me to the world of pizza. Like many other New Yorkers, I was raised on the NY slice. My pizza escapades come to life through my passion project, @hotbearpizza.

My second passion is community building. I've spent years building the Techstars Startup Weekend program in NYC and led community building for Reddit. Through my love for community and food, that lead me to create @dumplingcrawlnyc.

If you are doing anything cool and fun around food and community, always down to listen and help where needed!​
