Hi there! I'm Alejandro, founder of AnswerBite; investor-backed ai video marketing platform for enterprises. I'm a 2x founder with one exit. I created two podcasts with an audience of 55,000+ professionals and signed over 130 Fortune 500 clients across 4 continents for my previous MarTech company.
My podcast, FindingHere included guests such as Nelson Mandela's grandson, an Oscar-winning Hollywood producer, first American to win a gold medal in the World Judo Championships, a CNN hero and more. My second podcast, GettingThere, uncovers leaders finding sustainable solutions for humanity's biggest problems.
I love working with and meeting people who are passionate, kind, sincere, curious and don’t take themselves too seriously

How it all started
We are three American Latino tech founders based in San Francisco and New York City backed by top Silicon Valley and Silicon Alley investors.
Our ongoing success is owed to our parents, a long list of mentors and by working together being each others' best friends, mentors and advisors.
This latter strength has been critical to sharing relationships with over 5,000 top investors, industry leaders, and social leaders in the US.
