Background

Alex Karp is bilingual in German and English and speaks French. He received a law degree from Stanford University and a Ph.D. from the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany.

Karp was an early investor in In-Q-Tel, a not-for-profit venture capital firm that invests in technology solutions for the CIA.[1][2] He has been critical of tech companies that refuse to work with the federal government in the interest of national security. [3]

After 2011, Karp's counsel was Michael Leiter, former director of the National Counterterrorism Center.

Since 2018, he is on the board of Axel Springer SE, the biggest media corporation in Germany. [4]

Comments on Facebook

When interviewed by MSNBC at the World Economic Forum in 2019; Karp said the following regarding Facebook & Silicon Valley's influence on society:

We have historically delivered either jobs or national security in Silicon Valley. People understood the value of what we're doing. Now, Silicon Valley is creating micro-communities that break the consensus of larger society while simultaneously telling the average American; "I will not support your defense needs" and then selling their products to countries that are adversarial to America. That is a loser position. It is not intelligible. It is not intelligible to the average person. It's academically not sustainable and I am very happy we're not on"..."that side of the debate."[5]
