Al Lipper is a graduate of Occidental College (where he studied computer science and psychology), and holds graduate degrees from Cal Poly (Education) and ITP (Psychology).
He has founded a number of technology-oriented companies over the years, including an international engineering company which he sold in 2005. His current primary venture is Supercharged Science, an online educational publishing company, where he is Director & CEO. One of his primary goals in business these days is to create online businesses that maximize automation and outsourcing, require very little core staff, and which can be operated from anywhere.
However, Al’s true passion is for helping people live happier and more successful lives. He currently provides private consulting to a small number of entrepreneurial clients. He taught at Cal Poly for five years, has been a facilitator of leadership training workshops, is a public speaker and continues to mentor students and new entrepreneurs in business. He specializes in online business, innovative marketing strategies and the psychology of human behavior. Al is a CIE Founder’s Circle member and volunteers his time as a mentor.
He lives in San Luis Obispo with his amazing wife Aurora (Cal Poly BS ’96 and MS ‘97 Mechanical Engineering) and their four children. Activities include hiking, running, flying airplanes and striving to make the world a better place.
