Alec Ross is a New York Times bestselling author whose latest book, The Raging 2020s, puts forth the idea that a new social contract could restore the balance of power between government, citizens, and business in modern America. In short, he spends a lot of time thinking about what’s next.
Before he was one of the world’s leading experts on innovation, Alec was a night-shift janitor and a Baltimore school teacher. Currently, he is a board partner at Amplo, a global VC firm and a Distinguished Visiting Professor at The University of Bologna Business School. He has served as a senior fellow at both Johns Hopkins and Columbia Universities.
Previously, he was Senior Advisor for Innovation to US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and also served Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign and on the Obama-Biden Presidential Transition Team.
Alec is the author of the New York Times best-seller The Industries of the Future — which has been translated into 24 languages and was a best-seller on 5 continents.
