Alessandro Babini

Entrepreneur, mathematician and athlete

As the CEO of Humon, Alessandro is compelled everyday to use his creativity to building a successful wearables company.

Born in Paris to a French mother and an English educated, Italo-Lebanese father, Alessandro was immersed in an artistic environment since his youngest age. Growing up, he loved to draw. Among other things, he liked to design buildings and draw with perspective. Later, his studies became increasingly mathematically oriented and rationality began to influence his illustrative work. He studied mathematics in London and Paris and then worked as a venture capital investor helping entrepreneurs build successful companies.

''I used to see my startup and my artwork as two separate things. I’ve had to take over most of the creative and design work merging these two world.''

Working in ventore capital, Alessandro realized he was sitting on the wrong side of the table. He decided to move to Boston, where he eventually graduated from MIT Sloan and founded Humon.
