Paul Ahlstrom is a co-founder of Alta Growth Capital and Alta Ventures, both based in Mexico. Paul’s passion is supporting the growth of Latin America’s vibrant entrepreneur ecosystem and has invested into more than 30 promising companies focused on Mexico and Latin America.
Paul has operated on both sides of the table as a venture backed entrepreneur and now as an investor. After directly observing the patterns of startup success and failure of more than 100 startup investments over the past 15 years, he noticed some amazing patterns of entrepreneurs that had the habit of getting it right. Paul distilled these observations on how to increase the odds of getting it right in the book Nail It then Scale It.
He received his BA in Communications from Brigham Young University and received an honorary Doctorate from the Netanya Academic College in Netanya, Israel.
Paul focuses on a few priorities, which include getting the biggest task out of the way first. ONWARD!

“A business owner has to communicate effectively and learn to understand the consumer.”
