Alex Brown | Partner
Currently Researching: Evolving grid, the build environment and industrial decarbonization
Alex Brown is a Partner at Keyframe focused on investments in energy, the built
environment, and decarbonization. Like the other Partners of the firm, Alex
contributes to the entire lifecycle of an investment, from macro/industry research to
sourcing to investment due diligence and execution.
Alex began his career at Cyrus Capital (an affiliate of Keyframe), where he spent
over three years analyzing and executing investments in the public markets, largely
focused on energy and heavy industry. After his time at Cyrus, Alex served as
Director of Business Strategy and Operations at Celmatix, a Series A biotech startup
in NYC focused on women’s health. Following Celmatix, Alex shipped out to
California for business school, where he spent time in Market Operations at Leap, an
early-stage energy company that integrates distributed energy resources (DERs)
into the wholesale energy markets in a device-agnostic way.
Alex holds a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and Mathematics from Yale University
and a Master of Business Administration from the University of California Haas
School of Business. He loves music and the outdoors, and when he’s not reading
about the future of the grid, he can usually be found exploring the Catskills with his
Boston Terrier, Charlie.
