Partner and Co-founder, AlphaPrime Ventures
Alessandro Piol has been involved in the technology industry for over 30 years, first as a software developer, then as a marketing and business development executive at both a large corporation and in a startup, and finally as an investor. As a venture capitalist, Piol has been focused on software, new media, communications technologies and infrastructure. He’s a big fan of new technologies and new ideas, and an even greater fan of working with brilliant engineers and talented managers.
An angel investor, mentor and advisor to a number of companies in the New York area, he also co-authored the book, Tech and the City: The Making of New York’s Startup Community, about the birth of Silicon Alley and its entrepreneurial ecosystem.
