Website

Alex Barkaloff is a cross between the new media Hollywood producer at Lionsgate, as Executive Producer of Digital Media, and the tech gadget dealmaker. He started his career at JPL/NASA in the 80’s.

During the early 90’s Alex spent much of his time in central/east Europe, making deals with the Polish government for new technology ventures and also representing British, Dutch and American companies. He also was Managing Director of LB ICON, the interactive company behind Endemol’s reality hit show Big Brother.

While living in San Francisco in the later 90’s he worked for Oracle as a Director for New Business Development and specialized in entertainment technology. As a venture capitalist from 1998 to 2001, in his own GlobalNet Ventures, he funded entertainment and tech ventures, ArtistOne (one of the first online music labels with major artists attached, venture later sold to ArtistDirect), Creative Planet (founded by serial entrepreneurs John Valenti and Alan DeBevoise) and also Lucky Town, a motion picture starring Kirsten Dunst and James Caan.

Since 2002, he brought Vienna-based UCP Morgen (later acquired by QPass) and Tokyo-based Improove Technologies into the US market and made deals with major media companies as well as mobile operators and gadget companies such as Nokia, SonyEricsson, T-Mobile and Virgin.
