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]

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."[4]
