The Audacious Project

Lucien Chan is currently the Managing Director of Portfolio Impact for The Audacious Project, a collaborative funding initiative that unlocks social impact on a grand scale. Prior to Audacious, Lucien was a Managing Director on the Portfolio and Investment team at the Skoll Foundation. There he led Skoll’s investment practice, including the Skoll Awards for Social Entrepreneurship program. During his tenure, he directly led investments for a $40M portfolio spanning five continents and multiple sectors, including climate, health, smallholder agriculture, human rights, education, and employment. Before Skoll, Lucien spent over 12 years at Gap Inc. with the majority of his time at the Gap Foundation. A Bay Area native, Lucien received a B.B.A. in Business Administration from Emory University. In spite of having two high-energy boys at home, his penchant for travel and love of local foods perpetually lead him to dreaming of and planning for his next adventure.
