About me

I love to run and grow businesses by attracting and nurturing the most talented people and obsessing over product. In my most recent role as CEO of JustPark, I grew revenue over 10-fold in 3 years, built a top class team from 2 to more than 40, raised debt and equity finance from Index Ventures, and closed the largest equity crowdfunding for a startup in history. I'm now working with a stellar team to solve the big and complex problem of homelessness. I'm also the author of the latest book on the sharing economy, The Business of Sharing (Macmillan, 2015). You can find out more about the book here: http://amzn.to/13QZHgH. I provide expert comment on the sharing economy and startups and have appeared on Bloomberg TV, Sky News, FOX, NPR, and the BBC among others. I cut my professional teeth as a corporate lawyer at Magic Circle firm Clifford Chance before a stint in consulting where I advised leading professional services firms and private equity houses. I hold a First Class degree from Oxford University in English and got the fundamentals of financial analysis and accounting via a CFA qualification. Many people have kindly helped me over the years and I like to give back to the tech community whenever I can. I am very lucky to have mentored some hugely talented entrepreneurs through TechStars. I love to hear from smart, creative, hungry people who want to solve meaningful problems. If you want to reach out and we've never met, you can grab me via Twitter. @AlexStephany www.alexstephany.com
