I help Entrepreneurs, Schools, and Fortune 500's Drive Growth and Innovation.
My name is Alex Kehaya. I’m an entrepreneur, educator, and software engineer who’s passionate about creating positive change in the world through entrepreneurship and education.
I started my career as a K-12 educator. At the time, I had no idea how to start a business but new that I wanted to impact the education industry in a positive way.
I’ve always been a dreamer an “idea guy” but I lacked a process for validating my ideas and didn’t know where to start.
I set out to figure out how I could get my start. Through a friend, I got to have dinner with a serial entrepreneur and pitched one of my early business ideas. I said, “I don’t want to raise any money, I just want to know where to start”.
He introduced me to Steve Blank’s book The Four Steps To The Epiphany.
That one book ended up being the most influential book I’ve ever read and kicked off my career.
At the time, I was teaching at a little boarding School in Los Olivos California called the Dunn School. While there I worked with a good friend to take the ideas in Steve’s book and from his class taught at stanford to start an entrepreneurial studies program.
I then went on to start a series of workshops with Doris Korda and the Hawken school (she was a big influence in helping me build my program at Dunn) that helped over 100 schools build entrepreneurial studies programs at high schools and middle schools.
Doris is now scaling these workshops with her method for real problem based learning to thousands of students and teachers across the globe!
I’m a self taught full-stack software engineer and growth marketer and have worked with Fortune 500 companies and entrepreneurs to help them discover, launch, and scale new and interesting business models.
I keep busy running my own software companies Action Wins and Redi Match as well as doing a bit of consulting corporate accelerator programs with companies like Citrix, Red Hat, Cisco, and Deckers Brands.
I'm fortunate enough to have several amazing mentors who've helped me along the way and am always looking to give back.
I love connecting with and helping entrepreneurs so reach out to me on twitter or LinkedIn.

As a serieal entrepreneur and mentor of mine says "It's th doing that builds a company."
Redi Match enables real estate investors building portfolios of single family residences to analyze a single property or hundreads at a time in just a few seconds.

Wether you're managing an existing portfolio or aqcuireing new properties, all this data leads to making better investment decisions.
Go Zero To 1
Go Zero To 1 is an online course that I built to teach others how to go from idea to their first paying customers as fast as possible. It's a topic I'm super pationate about and something I find myself explaining to entrepreneurs all the time. I don't reinvent the wheel in this course, but rather leverage years of experience learning from some of the best in market validation and growth marketing
SaaS Growth Hacks
SaaS Growth Hacks is the largest Facebook group of Founders and Growth Marketers who are building SaaS Businesses. Started by Aaron Krall, I've been an active member of the community since 2016. I built a cusome rails application to power community directory and store all the great content being created.
Action Pages is a viral pre-launch and referral contest software based off of Harry's Shave Club's open source pre-launchr software. Tim Ferris first wrote about Harry's Shave Club's innovative referral marketing campaign tha enabled them to get over 100,000 email subscribers in just one week prior to their official launch.
Action Pages enables you to spin up a referral contest in minutes with just a few clicks.
Product Hunt Voter
Product Hunt Voter is a fun application I built using Angular, Ionic, and Product Hunt's API. I built it for bun to learn Ionic / Angular so I could build cross platform web and mobile applications. Turns out, it's pretty useful if you want to find all the twitter handles of people who've upvoted a particular Product Hunt post. Becareful not to span the community but you could use it for content distribution to a like minded audience.
I mentioned I'm a self taught software engineer.. I have a bunch more apps on Github that you can check out if you're interested. You can also find me on Twitter, LinkedIn, Medium, and our blog.
