Alexander Knight

Senior Vice President, Business Development

If I’m not advocating for change and progress, then you can find me championing the success of the outstanding founders and investors I get to work with every day.

Alex Knight serves as senior vice president, leading Cooley’s global DEI-driven business development efforts. Passionately committed to seeing a more diverse entrepreneur and venture capital ecosystem, Alex plays a vital role in elevating the Cooley platform to serve the unique challenges and opportunities of underrepresented minority founders, investors and executives. He is a “go-to” adviser and connector to Black, Latinx and other underrepresented founders of high-growth companies – assisting them with targeted introductions to venture capital, executive talent and other high-impact resources that accelerate company growth.
