Thinkful mentor

Alex Rattray


As a student at Penn, Alex created skincare products made from simple ingredients and cofounded a bike share before learning to code and building several award-winning hackathon projects and other apps. Most recently, he co-founded Emerald Exam, an education technology product used by thousands of students at over a dozen institutions to improve the exam experience. First Round Capital's Dorm Room Fund invested in the company, which we grew to seven people before closing its doors in March of 2014. He is currently taking a year to travel in Asia, doing software consulting as he goes.
