My mission is to build, scale, and fund entrepreneurs, talents, and creator brands to empower future generations.

Alvaro Gellings


Hi, I’m Alvaro Gellings, a serial entrepreneur passionate about building and scaling companies and brands.

Born and raised in Spain, I moved to Germany at a young age and went on to study business administration at the University of Hamburg. Over the years, I’ve founded and exited several successful ventures, including gaming companies, social media networks, fashion brands, and a nutrition and supplements company.

As an active entrepreneur and investor, I remain focused on scaling up my current business ventures and investing in promising startups. I’m passionate about helping aspiring entrepreneurs and talented individuals build and scale their own businesses while fostering growth and innovation in the world of creator brands. My experience in the rise of the creator economy has given me a unique insight into how it’s disrupting traditional industries.

I remain committed to positively impacting the world and look forward to working with others who share my passion. By empowering the next generation of leaders, we can create a brighter future for the economy.

If you’re interested in connecting with me, booking me as a speaker, or exploring how I can help you, don’t hesitate to get in touch!

*I offer NGOs & Social Enterprises free marketing consultation and introduction to my network of high-reach and influential individuals.
