Chieh Huang

Co-founder and CEO, Boxed.com

Chieh Huang is the Co-founder and CEO of Boxed, a company that is disrupting the wholesale shopping club experience by enabling you to shop for bulk-sized items online or via mobile app and have them delivered directly to your door.

Founded by Huang and three others in 2013, Forbes Magazine recently named Boxed one of the next “billion dollar startups.” The company currently delivers anywhere in the Continental United States, offers free two-day shipping on most orders, has raised $180 million in funding, and is known for its incredibly generous employee perks. In 2015, Huang, the son of Taiwanese immigrants, announced he would be personally paying for the college tuition of all of his employees’ children.

Prior to founding Boxed, Huang served as the CEO of Astro Ape, one of the first mobile social gaming studios. Upon leading Astro Ape to acquisition by Zynga, Huang stayed on as Director of Zynga Mobile NY, leading the fastest and most efficient game team at the company.

Huang’s personal honors include being named to Goldman Sachs’ list of 100 Most Intriguing Entrepreneurs (2016) and to National Retail Federation’s list of People Shaping Retails Future (2017). In addition, under Huang’s guidance, Boxed was named Emerging E-retailer of the Year by Internet Retailer in 2016.
A passionate advocate for education, Huang has been invited to participate in various meetings at The White House where he discussed ways Boxed and the private sector at large can help solve the student debt crisis. Huang is also a sought-after voice on the future of eCommerce.
