Hi, I’m Alex.
I’m blogging here since 2011. What you can expect here is a look at reality from different lenses as well as the occasional essay on technology, health and building companies. On the professional side, I am very excited about reinventing healthcare by deploying superior experiences and business models leveraging code and financial resources. That’s what I’m doing at Apriwell. We are enabling people to enjoy their best age in best health.
I’ve spent most of my professional career at technology companies. The mobile web was just starting to explode when I finished my master’s degree. At the same time, software was about to start eating healthcare and deep learning became feasible. As a consequence, the intersection of these three trends - software, healthcare, machine learning - became a driving force of my career.
After a short stint at a pharma strategy consulting boutique in New York, I was responsible for spinning out a technology product from a digital agency. I left that company to start and scale several ventures with Rocket Internet across Europe and Asia. In time, my passion for healthcare pulled me back in and I’ve co-founded Viomedo to accelerate time-to-market for new therapies. In 2018, Viomedo has been acquired by Clariness.
I try to give back to the community through investing in early-stage startups and occasionally advising corporates and funds. I am member of the healthcare board of the Berlin Chamber of Commerce and a jury member of the health-i award.
My angel investments include:
- Alphagreen Group: Global e-commerce platform in health and wellness
- Gavel: A YC-backed live shopping marketplace
- Memodio: A digital therapeutic for mild cognitive impairment
Thank you for visiting.
