Yang, the son of Taiwanese immigrants, created Venture for America, a “fellowship program for recent college graduates who want to become startup leaders and entrepreneurs,” worked in start-up tech companies, and is an entrepreneur who is trying to call attention to American workers who can’t afford to live on their wages alone.

But behind every politician and entrepreneur is their spouse, and Andrew Yang is no different.

Who is Evelyn Yang?

Evelyn Yang attended Columbia University and traveled to Shanghai while she was a student. While there, she became close friends with Eileen Lee, who eventually became COO of Venture for America!

According to Lee, “I met the founder, Andrew Yang, through his wife, Evelyn, in late 2010. At Columbia, Evelyn and I met while studying abroad in Shanghai, and she had the intuition that Andrew and I would work well together. She and I had both left corporate jobs after 5+ years, and I was in the midst of pivoting my career when I met with him.”

What does Evelyn Yang do?

Yang worked as a marketing executive for L’Oreal, but later quit her job to take care of the couple’s sons. She also worked in the corporate sector before attending Columbia.
