Anna Alex is a co-founder of OUTFITTERY, an online store with a vision of creating a fun, convenient, and inspiring online shopping experience specifically targeting men.
From its humble beginnings, the company now provides individual outfits to over 600K clients in eight countries.
Throughout her career, she was voted amongst Europe’s “Inspiring Fifty”, the “most inspirational women in tech “ and Junge Elite –Top 40 under 40′′
Anna realised her entrepreneurial spirit and creativity were being limited. She soon came to the conclusion that she was not made to fit in with a large corporation. Her next internship took her to a startup, where she was amazed at how she, as an intern, could help make beneficial changes in a business environment.
Anna Alex inspired by the “Leaders For Climate Action” initiative which Anna joined in 2019, she founded Planetly together with Benedikt Franke.
It’s Planetly’s declared goal to make the business world carbon-neutral. She strongly believes that data and technology have what it takes to provide companies with the required transparency of their CO2 footprint leading to actionable steps to reduce it.
Anna’s keynote speech and workshops combined inspiration and actionable advice at our careers event. Anna was great to work with, flexible to our needs and I would definitely recommend her as a speaker.Alex Bingley, Leadership Delivery Manager at Police Now
