Alexandra Kearns Associate Director of Business Development
Alex joins Propeller with diverse experience working with CPG and startup brands. For the last six years, she’s focused on advising and supporting founders through early fundraising rounds and developing engaged communities of learning and support to help startups scale.
Prior to Propeller, she was Head of Platform at Cowboy Ventures where she helped the firm strengthen and build the resources they provide to portfolio companies, industry partners, and LPs.
Alex also spent 5 years at CircleUp where she held a number of roles, all of which focused on supporting founders and nurturing CircleUp’s relationships across the CPG industry. Before CircleUp, she spent time at General Capital Partners in Denver and Nestle Business Services in Los Angeles.
Alex was born and raised in Denver but didn’t learn to appreciate the great outdoors until she moved to Los Angeles where she attended Occidental College. She’s now a proud dog-mom to Oliver, a labradoodle who has taught her many lessons – most notably the importance of mindfulness and living each day to the fullest.
