Born in Kyiv, Ukraine, Alex became an immigrant at the age of 15, when he moved to Atlanta, USA.
Although he hates the expression "a serial entrepreneur", he certainly qualifies to be so called. He founded over a dozen companies in various industries: IT, travel, entertainment, HoReCa, publishing.
Most of Alex's projects were pioneers in their fields: the first Russian transit hotel, the first restaurant employing all identical-twin staff, the first major GLBTQ social dating network for CIS countries, the first Jewish & Masonic cocktail bar, and many other firsts.
Alex is currently going through his second immigration — this time to Portugal. He believes that immigration is a new start that most people need in their lives.
