Alexander Motte has skills including that of management, innovation and the skill to see a potential business opportunity and these skills have continued to drive IronWeb’s success today. In 2009, Alexander Motte earned his Master’s degree in Quantitative Finance at Paris Dauphine University in Paris France. Originally, his pursuits were in the world of finance, working for HSBC and Natixis as a trader. These experiences gave him the foundation for his next career path which would be in business.
Having a primary interest in problem solving, Alexander Motte desired to found his own company. Upon digging further, he made the choice to start a full blown career in entrepreneurial endeavors. This entrepreneurial passion is the mentality that took the priority over his previous financial career. It was at that time that he quit his job in the financial industry in order to launch his first e-commerce business, TripUnion. TripUnion is a private sales website for hotels. This new business venture ignited his passion for business launching and he found that it was the industry in which he would like to primarily pursue his career aspirations.
In 2011, when Alexander Motte first founded TripUnion, he was unaware that it would lead him to a career in business development. TripUnion was the start at a chance to practice real world business development, sales analysis and e-commerce. After a selection of other entrepreneurial endeavors, Alexander Motte co-founded IronWeb. IronWeb is now the biggest European e-commerce group based on recurring business models.
