About

With HSC results in the top 1% of the State, Aleksandar Svetski was granted early entry and a Scholarship to the University of Wollongong. He found the university was not enough of a challenge and decided to put his scholarship money onto the stock market instead of his textbooks.

Turning that money into a small fortune, Aleks decided to leave university after his 2nd year to chase bigger dreams.

Having unknowingly made this move right before the GFC he does not also saw his dreams shattered but ended up almost a quarter of a million in debt by the age of 20 - a far cry from where he had hoped.

This initial setback led him down the Entrepreneurial path. Early successes led to his expansion into various other industries such as Renewable Energy, Health Clubs, Franchising & Technology.

Aleks has been featured in publications such as Wealth Creator, The Age, Syd Morning Herald and been awarded as one of the Top 20 Young Entrepreneurs in Start-Up Smart's "Future Makers" competition in 2011.

Since 2011, he has been directly involved with tech, eg; ML, Ai, Mobile Apps and most recently Bitcoin, along with a deep study of monetary history, economics, anthropology, society, and math.

Having honed his experience and built a network in the industry, Aleks is currently focused on Amber, whose mission to make exposure to Bitcoin (as an asset class) as simple, low risk and automated as possible.

Alongside driving Amber, Aleks is a Top 10 writer on Medium & Hackernoon for Bitcoin, and a dynamic presenter on the bullish case for Bitcoin at tech, money, finance and fintech conferences around the world.
