Alain Le Berre

Advisory Board Member, Innovation Forum Lausanne

Corporate Finance and Strategy Consultant/Non-Executive Director of Alpha Corporate Finance

Alain has over 25 years’ business experience, of which over 20 years on-and-off but almost constant involvement with Start-ups. Over the years, he acted as a Co-Founder, Angel Investor, Consultant, Interim CFO, Non-Executive Director to various Start-ups in various sectors and in several countries (Germany, France, UK, Switzerland) – and now as a Mentor within the CTI Training Initiative at EPFL (Lausanne, Switzerland). In his free time during all those years, he also enjoyed acting as a Partner with EY (Ernst & Young), a Managing Director in Investment Banking in the City of London, a European Managing Partner for US- and UK-based listed financial consultancies, a CFO in industry, a Private Equity professional, a Strategy Consultant with The Boston Consulting Group and a Factory Manager turning around troubled industrial plants. He lived and worked in roughly equal proportions in France, Germany, UK and now Switzerland where his current pastime is to act as President of AlpahaConsulting, a boutique he founded in 2010 and which focuses on Special Situations Advisory and CRO (Chief Restructuring Officer) roles – albeit not so much for Start-ups.
