About the founder Alexander Sterk
After receiving his Economics degree from EADA Business School Barcelona, Alexander Sterk kicked off his professional career by becoming a consultant at YER. After half a year, a friend of his introduced him to Interfood, a trading house that buys and sells dairy products such as butter and milk powder, where he became a commodity trader. Sterk quickly fell in love with the industry as he, compared to his time as a consultant, could make an immediate impact. After years of working there, he realizes that it became difficult for him to keep up with the latest developments that can influence prices, such as the weather and energy prices. The legacy systems—decentralized information, little innovation, and a lack of real-time actionable insights in the commodity trading industry, hindered his ability to do his job. It was clear to him the commodity intelligence market was ripe for disruption. Alexander quit his job as a commodity trader and founded Vesper: an independent commodity intelligence platform with advanced predictive insights, powered by AI - all gathered under the same platform.
