Alex’s first job was with a startup in San Francisco (some time in the last century) but he then joined the corporate world and travelled the globe for DHL. Since 2007 he has gone back to his first love and has been hyper active on the Danish and European startup scene.
Alex co-founded and runs Startupbootcamp in Copenhagen; has been a not too successful Business Angel; has organised and run several Startup Weekends; co-founded Startupjobs.eu; and co-founded the monthly F1rst Friday startup network.
Alex is a French citizen, was born in Spain and grew up in Africa. He’s married to a Dane and has two young children.
