  • Co-Founder

    Flippit was founded after TSA found Alexander’s Swiss Army Knife in his bag and he had to give it up. An Eagle Scout from NYC, Alexander is a History major at Trinity College in CT, where he’s been an RA, fundraised for the annual fund, sings a cappella, and more. After years of light involvement, he became an active member of Flippit's team in 2023, working closely with Trinity's Entrepreneurship Center to raise funds for our national expansion.

  • Co-Founder and CEO

    Natalie likes to add clicks to the bricks. Since she was thrust into general management at age 25 on the premature death of her boss, Natalie has run manufacturing businesses and a digital consultancy, advising both private and public sector clients on how to leverage digital to improve operations. She is applying her knowledge of logistics and procurement, user-testing and general management directly to building Flippit. linkedin.com/in/nmyates
