Alexander is a serial entrepreneur with more than a decade of startup experience. Most recently he co-founded CultureMap. Prior to that he co-founded ShopSavvy, Fancast, Architel and LayerOne.
Over the past decade I have raised more than $50 million dollars for my own startups from venture capital firms, family offices and angel investors. I've given hundreds of pitches to venture capital firms in the Bay Area, North East and North Texas area.
I have worked with Alex at Architel for more than 2 years and working at his company was a great experience. I would not hesitate to work for or with him again.
I have known Alex for about 8 years and he has always impressed me with his innovation and intellect. He has helped me greatly.
I've worked with Alex setting up my first business relationship at eBay, then Longboard and Bazaarvoice. Alex is an exceptional leader and entrepreneur with a pragmatic and direct approach towards building companies. His balance and aptitude towards managing a team always apparent. I strongly recommend Alex and hope to continue crossing paths for years to come.
For well over 15 years, Alex has played a significant role behind the growth of innovation and entrepreneurship in North Texas. Through his knowledge, hard work, and creative leadership, Alex developed collaborative organizations supporting the development of entrepreneurs and events for promoting success and facilitating networking. He has also advised numerous entrepreneurial companies and assisted with their formation, growth, and development. Alex has also had success as an entrepreneur and my previous entity, NTEC, was a customer of one of Alex's companies...they did an excellent job of being flexible and customer centric while meeting our needs. Alex knows the start-up business well, has a proven track record of starting and growing businesses, has a demonstrated history of leadership, and a firm handle on operations. He has my recommendation as a regional thought leader, innovator, and entrepreneur.
Alexander has always impressed me end-to-end - from concept, design, development and management he's showed skill to handle the storm in clear and stormy weather.
Alex is one of the brightest people I know. A true entrepreneur and visionary, he is able to see business opportunities in the midst of dynamic/chaotic markets and quickly build a business to take advantage of those opportunities. He has a considerable track record of success. I view him as a trusted advisor and confidante who brings passion and leadership to all endeavors. Highly Recommended!
Alexander is one of the most impactful entrepreneur in DFW and Texas. He has been a mentor, guide and has helped countless aspiring entrepreneurs in the metroplex and beyond.
I've personally benefited from his advice many times and he has been very generous in sharing his thoughts at many different events including MIT enterprise forum events which I organized.
He has a sharp eye for business opportunities, plenty of execution experience and a great work ethic. You will love working with him!
Alex is one of those rare entrepreneurs who has both been on the forefront of several emerging technology shifts; such as cloud services and mobile retail, as well as being a very visible catalyst for the greater start-up community at-large.
Alex is sharp, agile, and a retail guru. I have no doubt he will build The HAUL Company into another success story as he did with ShopSavvy.
I have watch Alexander lead as a pier, a founder, and an industry professional and have tremendous respect for his abilities. His since of integrity and foresight have contributed to his business success as well as his common since approach to problem solving. I look forward to the opportunity to partner on a project.
Alex is an ambitious and extremely forward-thinking member of the startup community both locally and across the US.
Over the past year, he has provided invaluable insight into my business, whilst asking for nothing in return. I know for a fact he's frequently done the same for many others.
In other words, he's contributing selflessly to aid in the establishment and solidification of Dallas' startup ecosystem — both in terms of advice and his work — and it's a true pleasure to have him here.
In terms of his latest venture, HAUL, he appears to have another winning concept on his hands. He has assembled a fantastic team and they're working to realize a fascinating concept.
Alex is a great leader and thinker. I can only imagine HAUL will do exceptionally well as a result.
