Founder's Co-opManaging Director,
Alexa Accelerator, powered by Techstars
Aviel Ginzburg is a General Partner at Founders’ Co-op and Managing Director of the Alexa Accelerator, powered by Techstars, which is backed by Amazon’s Alexa Fund. In 2010 Aviel co-founded Simply Measured, one of Founders’ Co-op’s first investments and was later backed by Bessemer Venture Partners, Trinity Ventures, and MHS capital. When Simply Measured sold to Sprout Social at the end of 2017, Aviel transitioned from his role as Venture Partner into a full time General Partner. Aviel got his start as one of the first software engineers at Appature (acquired by IMS Health), which was also backed by Founders’ Co-op in 2009. Though a new addition to the partnership, Aviel knows the Founders’ Co-op ecosystem well, and has played every role from portfolio founder, to company employee, to partner over a 10 year period. Aviel holds a BS from Vanderbilt University.
