Book a Value Capture Mentoring session

Why mentoring?

I help people like you fix wicked problems.

I’ve created strategic plans — I call them journey roadmaps — with people like you in just about every market sector, across multiple geographic regions around the world. I’ve worked with start-ups and scale-ups, as well as all types of government agencies, including planning for smart cities.

I can help you determine what direction you need to go and how to get your business or project to where it needs to be. And I can do that fast, using reliable evidence-based knowledge of what works — that is, what new technology capabilities can help you solve real problems and generate verifiable value.

Mentoring gives you a short cut to clarity and confidence by walking you through the process of comprehending the value capture potential of your business or project — within the context of an interconnected digital world — and then applying that value to fuel your journey to your new desired end point.

Hi, I’m Stephen Alexander.

I'm an Adjunct Professor at the Hult International Business School London campus and the creator of the Digital Value Capture® framework. I bring 30 years’ experience of interacting with thought leaders such as Bill Gates, whilst pioneering many disruptive technologies including e-commerce, and driving digital transformation journeys across multiple market sectors. More recently, I've worked with many of the distributed ledger based technologies. Ethereum co-founder Joe Lubin funded me to determine the total value potential of decentralised currencies and digital assets over the next ten years.
