An Angel in New York: Alain Bankier



Back in 1995, Alain Bankier co-founded the angel investor activity of the New York New Media Association (NYNMA), which was the precursor of the New York Angels.  Today, as a New York Angels member and Co-President and CEO of The Manischewitz Company, Bankier is an early stage investor interested in the food tech space.  Food tech is the use of technology to disrupt the existing food industry at any part of the “farm to fork” chain.  He is currently an investor in two leading New York based food tech companies:  Mouth.com and Plated.com

Bankier received an MBA in Finance from HEC School of Management, an MBA in Finance from the Leonard N. Stern School of Business at New York University, a BA in Psychology and a BS in Economics from the University of Pennsylvania.
