Supporting entrepreneurs to build a sustainable business

About Alexander Kohl

Alexander Kohl

After a successful career in the corporate world, where I produced events for companies such as Adidas, BMW, and Citibank, I became increasingly interested in the non-corporate and sustainable small business world.

This newfound interest took root at the Clean Energy World Tour (which I produced for BMW in 2002) and bore fruit at the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg that very same year, where I found my passion to make the world a more sustainable place to live for each of us.

I went on to produce the Sustainable Living Festival in Melbourne in 2004, an event which brought 120,000 visitors from all over the world and delivered the message of hope from sustainability to its participants.

After that I moved closer to Ocean and National Park and now live in Noosa, Australia with my wife and two daughters.

SolarPay was my first successful venture, growing to 22 employees within 12 month of starting it. I accepted an offer to sell the business. Then systemised a friend’s business and increased revenue fivefold within a few months. Jet Bookkeeping, morphing into Jet Convert after a year is my third real venture.

  1. Hi Alec

    It’s the first time I read your blog and I’m inspired. You are so bang on about entrepeneurship and small business. I have been looking for a way to distribute my time in a way that is
    (a) more efficient
    (b) more rewarding
    (c) more productive
    (d) less stressful
    and
    (e) higher return on my investment.

    I’m going to start with one or two of your suggestions and build on them. I know you probably don’t have time to help anyone else with their small business but I would really really love to hear your thoughts on how to delegate when you have only one member of staff and you can barely afford any more. Also how to attract investment and prepare sponsorship proposals.

    talk soon

    Patricia
