Alexi Venneri, co-founder and CEO, Digital Air Strike

Venneri previously worked for the Seattle Mariners and multiple technology companies before starting her award-winning social media and digital engagement company company that now employs 170 with most based in Scottsdale.

Advice: “If you see an opportunity – take it. I started Digital Air Strike during a recession in 2010 because that’s when I saw an opportunity to help businesses find innovative and low-cost ways to reach consumers through social media.”

Surprising fact: “I’ve always been interested in entrepreneurs and wrote a book, ‘Balls! 6 Rules for Winning Today’s Business Game,’ about them.”
