Michael Bamberger
Alpha UX

Michael Bamberger is the co-founder of Alpha UX, a real-time user insight and research platform for large enterprises. Prior to creating Alpha UX, Michael served as vice president of Greenhaven Partners, a private equity firm where he executed comprehensive business strategies across a portfolio of companies. Tell us more about Alpha UX. What are its main goals, and how does it achieve those goals?

Michael: Alpha UX brings real-time user insights to product teams, enabling them to build more successful products. Most companies struggle to get meaningful feedback from users throughout the product development process. This often leads to failed products, wasted time and effort, and a lot of internal issues. We make rapid user research accessible for organizations so they can navigate around the issues that slow them down.

We offer monthly access to our testing platform, which enables product teams to run rapid user experiments or tap into their database of organizational research to generate user insights.

Benjamin Geyerhahn
Founder and CEO

Benjamin Geyerhahn is an experienced entrepreneur, healthcare policy expert, and member of New York Governor Cuomo’s Health Benefit Exchange Regional Advisory Committee. He is the founder and CEO of BeneStream, which uses a combination of technology and a multi-lingual call center to guide both employers and employees through the Medicaid enrollment process. Tell us a little bit about BeneStream. How did your experience in litigation and consulting prepare you to lead a company like BeneStream?

Benjamin: Being an attorney (and later a policy consultant) gave me the skills to understand both the complexity of the regulatory environment insurance brokers operate in and the opportunities the Affordable Care Act has created for brokers. Running a political and policy consulting firm requires a team that can develop and launch a new effort for a new client every year or every election cycle. I understand how to develop a plan and execute that plan. That’s the core of what a startup must do. BeneStream’s business model is unique; no other business is offering services specifically related to Medicaid migration. Was there a particular experience that made it obvious that this was a huge need?

Rameet Chawla

Fueled is a New York City based mobile application design and development agency that specializes in emerging mobile applications. Fueled started at General Assembly, a startup hub and incubator in Manhattan, shortly after the release of Apple’s App store. The app genius’ at Fueled are responsible for some of the coolest, most cutting edge apps in existence. We are very selective about what clients and projects we take on and which ones we flat out reject. We produce award winning apps (our awards range from places such as Digiday Mobi Awards and the Webby awards), so there’s no way we can settle for anything less than perfection. The Fueled clients range from startups to well established brands such as Porsche, Proctor and Gamble, Gilt Group, GoDaddy and the Chicago Bulls.

We now have the Fueled Collective as well, housing over 20 startups in an awesome environment. The Collective is more than a shared office space, it is an environment for young startups to grow and mature. The Collective does not force renters into leases, giving them the freedom they need to grow or shrink as needed.

MO: What factors do you attribute to the impressive growth the Fueled has experienced since launching?
