About Alex M. Vikoulov
Economist by training, philosopher by vocation, in his words, "worked in the corporate world, worked in the startup world, sat on the boards, sat on the beach, was employed, was self-employed, was a venture capitalist, was an 'adventure' capitalist," while his passion towards physics and philosophy slowly but surely was brewing in the background. Born and raised in Russia, Alex Vikoulov was growing up a gifted child so much so that his parents transferred him to a lycée with enhanced math and foreign language programs. He studied humanities at Tomsk State University and had his first entrepreneurship experience by running Sibmarket Financial, among the first hedge funds in Russia. He immigrated to the United States in 1994 at the age of 24, continued his studies in the U.S. where he graduated in 1999 from Armstrong University with degrees in finance and economics. Alex Vikoulov has a diverse background in fintech and IT industries. Ecstadelic Media Group, PR/digital media and publishing company, is one of his latest projects. Prior to Ecstadelic Media, he served as CFO and board member of the AI startup Neuromama, Ltd. From 2005 to 2013 held various executive positions, and spent about 3 years as a business consultant in Southeast Asia. From 2001 to 2005, managed San Francisco office of First Data Corp., the largest payment processor in the U.S. From 1999 to 2001, he held a consultant position with Prudential Securities, Inc. From 1990 to 1994, as President & CEO, Vikoulov managed Sibmarket Financial, one of the pioneering hedge funds in the emerging markets, while serving as a stock exchange board member. He started his career at Incombank in 1990 as a statistical analyst. These days he describes himself as a futurist, digital philosopher, neo-transcendentalist, evolutionary cyberneticist, transhumanist singularitarian, cosmist, scholar, consciousness researcher, media commentator, painter and author. Currently resides in Burlingame, CA (San Francisco Bay Area).
