Team

Andrew Czernecki

Before founding Konkordia, Andrew spent his career in private equity, focusing on healthcare and business services in both the lower middle-market and in growth equity / late-stage venture capital. He has participated in numerous transactions in the healthcare space, working with companies that grew to become leaders in their industries. It was his experience investing in and working with these companies that led him to understand that there was an underserved market for smaller companies needing flexible capital solutions.

Andrew began his career at Vision Capital Advisors, a late-stage venture capital and growth equity fund focused on healthcare, TMT, and renewable energy. It was at Vision that Andrew began his work in healthcare. Working with companies in sectors such as medical imaging, bio-sciences, and medical technologies.

After leaving Vision, Andrew worked at Revelstoke Capital Partners, a lower-middle market, healthcare-focused private equity fund. At Revelstoke, Andrew’s team focused on outsourced healthcare services, as well as outpatient providers / retail clinics. Andrew spent years working with leaders in spaces such as wound care, rehabilitation, and imaging (see below for selected companies that Andrew has worked with).

Andrew received his MBA from Columbia Business School. He completed his undergraduate studies at Duke University, where he majored in Mathematics.
