Focus on Outcomes
Alameda Advisors partners with its clients to achieve success and prefers arrangements where we share the benefits of that success with our clients.
The Alameda Approach
Alameda provides strategic resources for our clients when and where they are needed. We are there strictly when you need us, and not more.
Who We Are
The heart and soul of Alameda consists of serial entrepreneurs and corporate executives who have successfully converted complex technology and life science ideas into businesses that sell real products.
While our team has had deep education and experience in science and engineering we understand that we are not experts in every sector of technology. Alameda's extended team of technical advisors includes senior industry professionals and leading academics with exceptional technology track records, publications and patents.
- We are experts in our fields, turnaround executives, and innovators. We have been parts of large organizations early in our careers and learned what works in large organizations as well as the challenges of corporate culture.
- We have been founding entrepreneurs of companies developing complex hardware targeting customer bases globally.
- We have broad educational backgrounds that have been enhanced by real world business experience in dozens of countries.
- Some of us have been guest instructors at leading universities. We are recognized in our fields as invited speakers, quoted by the press and interviewed on television news.
