Alexis Coates is the father of three wonderful children and
the founder of BlackBusinessReview.net.
Born in Baltimore, Maryland, Alexis grew up in the inner city in a
stable, close-knit environment with his parents and siblings. He is a serial
entrepreneur, community leader and businessman who is committed to building
legacy businesses for his family and community.
After attending college and playing professional basketball
internationally, Alexis knew he wanted to go into business for himself. His
first company was in the telecommunications industry. With that company, he got
his first big break in business by winning a city government IT contract. During the process of competing and
ultimately winning government contracts, Alexis learned first-hand the
necessity of building strong relationships and partnerships in business.
These lessons served Alexis well as he went on to build innovative
companies in the technology sector, where he raised multiple six-figure
investments for educational technology and software development. Because of his
creative approach to connecting teachers, students and parents, Alexis saw his
first company’s technology integrated into public school districts. His achievements in the Edtech sector are among
the highlights of his entrepreneurial life.
Alexis has been recognized as a leader in education and
served a term as board chair of the National Academy Foundation High School in Baltimore,
MD. He has also been honored in business by awards including Product
of the Year for his educational software, Innovator of the Year by The Daily
Record, Business Leader of the Year by BMORE Media among many others.
As founder of BlackBusinessReview.net, Alexis is building the
premier news portal for business and political news impacting Black people
around the world. The
BlackBusinessReview™ brand is also planning golfing and women in leadership
events to help Black business leaders meet, connect and develop business opportunities.
Alexis credits his success to living by the mantra - 'Never
quit no matter how hard it gets, success is just around the corner.'
