William Schoenfeld

Chairman, Aegis Ventures

William Schoenfeld is the Chairman of Aegis Ventures. He is also the founder, largest shareholder and CEO of Asia Pacific Land, a global investment firm that has completed $20 billion in transactions across real estate, private equity, renewable energy and venture capital.

Foreseeing the path of structural growth in Asia, Bill founded APL at the age of 28 in a 10x10 windowless office in Hong Kong. From its earliest days, he differentiated APL by pursuing unorthodox opportunities in new markets with few other foreign investors. As the firm's reputation and resources grew, the company successfully executed some of the largest and highest-profile private market transactions in the markets in which it competes.

A dedicated impact investor for nearly two decades, Bill has devoted the next phase of his career to integrating his larger goals for improving the world with his investment efforts. Most recently, Bill led the creation of Aegis Ventures, a NY-based startup studio, to apply his decades of business-building expertise to empower the next generation of innovators to improve the world through entrepreneurship.

Bill graduated from Williams College with a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy, with a focus on moral philosophy. He continues to nurture a lifelong love of learning and has a particular passion for languages.
