Alexander Muse      

Exploring the intersection of retailing, technology and entrepreneurship.

Alexander Muse and his co-founders had no idea back in 2008 they would play a major role in disrupting the retail shopping industry, but that is just what they did when they launched ShopSavvy. Under Alexanders leadership as CEO, ShopSavvy grew into the worlds largest mobile shopping community with more than 40 million downloads - in 2012 alone the company doubled the number of users and grew revenue by more than 400%. ShopSavvy is helping both retailers and consumers open new lines of communication that were previously impossible to achieve at scale.

Today the team is focused on radically higher ambitions by making shopping more social by connecting ShopSavvy to a shoppers social graph. In the last year, ShopSavvy has raised $7 million led by Eduardo Saverin, quadrupled the size of the team in San Francisco.

Alexander is a serial entrepreneur with more than a decade of startup experience. He is a co-founder of Architel, one of the largest cloud management companies in North Texas. Started in 2001, the company helps Fortune 1000 companies bring their IT operations into the cloud. In 1999, Alexander founded LayerOne, a neutral interconnection and colocation provider that was sold in 2003 to Switch & Data (Equinix).
