Alexander Motte, Lover of Problem Solving

April 15, 2016
One of the most important skills of a successful entrepreneur is the ability to problem solve. The skills of management, innovativation of thought and business development have always driven Alexander Motte’s career and continue to help him drive success at IronWeb today, but his keen ability to problem solve in all circumstances has gotten him where he is.
Alexander Motte studied Quantitative Finance at Paris Dauphine University in Paris France and graduated with a Master’s degree in the subject in 2009. In the beginning, his pursuits were in the finance world. Working for companies like HSBC and Natixis as a trader gave him a solid foundation for his career. After gaining practice with his business development skills through the finance industry, Alexander Motte was ready to try his dream of being an entrepreneur. In 2011, Alexander Motte founded TripUnion, a private online sales website for hotels. TripUnion gave him the space to practice business development, sales analysis and e-commerce and after a few other entrepreneurial endeavors, Alexander Motte co-founded IronWeb. IronWeb has now developed to be the biggest European e-commerce group based on the recurring business models.

His original interest in starting his own company came out of his passion for problem solving. Upon further investigation, he decided that he would like to branch into a career involving his entrepreneurial dreams. This dream began to supersede his financial career and eventually Alexander Motte quit the finance industry in order to launch his first e-commerce business, TripUnion. This was his first taste of business establishment and he found that it was the industry in which he would like to continue the rest of his career.
