Lessons from the Frontline: Angel Investor Alex Hoye & Entrepreneur Ryan Notz

The Entrepreneurship Club and the VC team are welcoming Alex Hoye and Ryan Notz on campus.

The event will be held in the form of a dialogue – and the speakers will share their entrepreneurial philosophies, lessons learned in founding multimillion dollar businesses and their views on European Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital.  A reception with drinks and snacks will follow immediately afterwards. Dress code is business casual.

Alex Hoye has co-founded GoIndustry plc from the proverbial napkin, nurturing it from bootstrap, product development stage through to its current status as a publicly-listed, 17-country market leader in the sale of industrial assets.Since taking GoIndustry public for over $100m in 2006, Alex has been encouraged by and encouraging the wave of entrepreneurial inspiration capturing Europe. To this end, Alex acts as angel investor, principal or mentor in internet-based and consumer brand projects.  Some of these include Seedcamp.org, where he is chairman of the Advisory Board, home repair marketplace Buildersite.co.uk, where he is chairman, and edgy Faction Skis, which he co-founded.  Alex is a trustee of the Venture Partnership Foundation, which applies venture methods to the social sector, is an officer of London’s YPO chapter.  Aside from investing and advising, Alex is nurturing two stealth mode internet projects.Alex cut his teeth at McKinsey & Co. and Disney, building analytical, restructuring, finance, and M&A skills.  He has worked out of the UK, Germany, the US and Latin America, speaking the respective languages to varying degrees.  While obtaining his BA from Stanford and MBA from Harvard, ever the entrepreneur, he co-founded the wine club at both. 

Ryan Notz, a stonemason, founded buildersite.co.uk to help tradesmen and homeowners transact business through the web.  It was a service Ryan felt was sorely needed not only for tradesmen like himself, but for homeowners who had such a difficult time finding reliable, quality builders.  Never having set out to be a web entrepreneur, the idea came to him in the middle of the night, an opportunity staring him in the face, daring him to go for it.  Money was tight, and Ryan was supporting a wife, two kids, and another one on the way.  It was risky as hell, but he quickly went ‘all in’, thanks to the unyielding support from his wife, dad and brother.  Buildersite was recently recognized as a top startup by the incubator SETsquared, the funding competition Seedcamp, and The Courvoisier Future 500, where Ryan was identified as the ‘one to watch’.  Buildersite recently closed a solid seed funding round with some of the UK’s top investors, including Alex Hoye, Robin and Saul Klein, Paul Birch, and Jamie Murray Wells. 

This event will be governed by the three strikes policy.  Any cancellations must be received at least 24 hours in advance.
