About Alex

Alex joined Scale in 2013 as a Principal, responsible for sourcing investments in DroneDeploy and Forter. A Partner since 2017, Alex has focused on early investments in vertical software markets where incumbents have failed to invest in advanced technology offerings. That thesis has led to investments in Archipelago, Dusty Robotics, Motive formally KeepTruckin, Root Insurance, Scout RFP, Sixfold, Spruce, Proscia, and Proxy. Motive has been one of the fastest growing SaaS companies of all time; Scout RFP was acquired by Workday in late 2019 for $540M; and Root completed its IPO in late 2020.

Alex sits on the Board of Directors of Motive, Spruce, Proscia, and Archipelago. He has written about SaaS in TechCrunch and been profiled by Business Insider, Forbes, and Silicon Valley Business Journal.
