Alex Anton

Founder @ HIKE Mentoring and Consulting

My career focus in on startup and growth investing, strategy, growth and authentic leadership development. My work, expertise and passions have a common theme: growth, both personal and professional.

An MBA from Harvard Business School, I have been in Latin America’s entrepreneurial ecosystem for more than a decade, starting off by launching Easy Taxi in Malaysia back in 2012/13. My analytical and strategic-thinking toolkit was refined at McKinsey & Company, which was a platform to entrepreneurial roles at Kaszek Ventures and iFood. As iFood’s Chief Strategist I helped the company craft and execute its short and long-term strategy against aggressive competition and raise $500M in 2018, by then the largest private round in Latam. In 2019 I joined Global Founders Capital as a Partner, co-leading Latam and opening investments in Mexico and Colombia. In 4 years we deployed north of $200M in 80 companies across Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, Chile and Argentina. I am proud of the portfolio we built and grateful for the incredible learning.

In 2023 I founded HIKE, where my goal is to keep applying my passion for startups, strategy and people development in a tangible way. As such, I partner with founders and companies as an independent, trusted advisor along the entrepreneur’s journey, with a focus on strategy and leadership development. Above all, I want to help founders make faster and better decisions, improving efficiencies and identifying pain-points, weaknesses and growth opportunities, both for themselves and their companies. I also serve mature companies as an independent board member, M&A advisor and corporate VC.
