Co-founder and CTO, ICON
Alex Le Roux is the co-founder and CTO of ICON, the construction technologies company leading the way into the future of human shelter and homebuilding using 3D printing and other scientific and technological breakthroughs.
In 2018, ICON delivered the first 3D-printed home to receive a building permit in the U.S. and closed a seed round of $9M that included investments from Silicon Valley heavyweights, a renowned international developer and America’s largest homebuilder among others.
Prior to co-founding ICON, Alex began his career by co-founding Vesta Printers where their mission was building large-scale, affordable 3D printers that bring automation and customization to the construction industry. This venture then led to Le Roux joining forces with long-time entrepreneurs and business leaders, Evan Loomis and Jason Ballard, to co-found ICON.
Le Roux graduated from Baylor University with a bachelor of science in Mechanical Engineering. He resides in Austin, TX.
