About
Hybrid Ventures

We partner with entrepreneurs who possess exceedingly high imagination, work ethic, and a clear desire to solve big problems that are unaddressed in the markets they are in.

We take on the challenge of helping new and growing companies find success by disrupting their industries and by establishing a record of success that drives them to continued growth. We provide experience-based mentorship that helps founders achieve their goals efficiently and effectively. Think of our team as the shortcut you’ve always been looking for.

What we look for in Founders

Perseverance

Obstacles are inevitable if you are involved in startups. Our partners must possess the ability to find solutions to daily problems that will come at them from all angles.

Commitment

Starting and growing a company is extremely difficult. It’s even harder when the founders are working on different ventures. We want to make sure the entrepreneurs we work with are spending 100% of their time concentrating on the critical tasks for the ventures we partner with them on.

Integrity

People matter. At every stage of our partnership we work to build trust that furthers the success of your mission.

My experience includes:

  • All aspects of Acquisition/Dispositions/Management of over $800 million in multifamily apartment properties.
  • Helped lead our growth strategies from a regional group to a national footprint.
  • Successfully scaled the company from 3 to 175+ employees.
  • Assisted in developing and instituting industry leading culture; core values, themes, KPI’s, employee score cards, etc.

I want to share my experiences with founders that are able to benefit from all the mistakes I made!

Q&A with Alex

What’s your life’s goal?I enjoy working hard and playing hard. Finding a balanced lifestyle between family, work, health and mental peace is something I work constantly towards achieving.

What’s on your most listened to playlist?Chill step – It’s a little known mix of classical music and EDM that will get you in the zone. (It’s my secret sauce...shhhh, don't tell anyone.)

What’s your favorite book?My favorite book of all time is Outliers by Malcom Gladwell. I’m also an Audible fiend. I try to finish a book every two weeks.

How do you recharge?On special occasions, I prefer activities where my phone has no reception (scuba diving, fishing, skiing, hiking, etc.). But on regular days a tough gym session with friends or a couple of hours playing sports also helps me reset.

What's the best advice you've ever received? “Life is too short and then you die.”

What is the one thing you wish you had done earlier in life? Find a mentor. Having one earlier on in life could have saved me a lot of time and money.

Name one person you’d like to have dinner with. Tim Ferriss! I love the way he deconstructs world class performers in an array of industries and allows regular people to learn from their life experiences.

What’s a personal dream you want to accomplish? I hope to attend every World Cup until I die.
