About the founder

Hi there, my name is Alex. My journey started with an undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering, followed by almost 5 years working in the financial sector. During my time working I wrote and passed all three CFA exams in an effort to broaden my knowledge of investments. Thereafter, given my passion for the sciences, I left my job to pursue a masters degree (MPhil) in Biotechnology at the University of Cambridge. 

I started Biotechyst to bring together my two passions - biotechnology and investments. 


  • BScEng in Chemical Engineering (University of Cape Town, South Africa)

  • Passed CFA level I, II & III

  • MPhil in Biotechnology (University of Cambridge, UK)
