Alexander Bigbie, MA

Founder & EXecutive Director 

Alexander Bigbie moved to New Orleans from London UK after 5 years of working with Barclays plc Corporate and Investment Bank. 

He is the in-house lead finance consultant for Propeller Incubator, an accelerator for impact businesses in the city. During his free time he began helping staff with their financial literacy at Liberty's Kitchen, a NOLA based nonprofit. He soon realized the disastrous effects of poor financial literacy on businesses, families and individuals in the city and country as a whole and founded Flyte.

He holds a Masters degree in English Literature and Modern History from the University of St Andrews and a Professional Certificate of Banking from the University of London. 

Our Team

Flyte’s key partners are the Orleans Public Defenders, Regions Bank and Liberty’s Kitchen. Through these partnerships we can ensure that the program has the highest quality content that we are able to reach as many people in the city as possible.

Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.
