Health enthusiast, avid athlete and Austrian entrepreneur Constantin Bisanz founded ALOHA in January 2014 with a mission to help others live healthier, happier lives. Along with his team, Constantin creates real food products made from simple, pure, sustainably-sourced ingredients, offering accessible solutions for everyone to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
His inspiration for founding ALOHA came from studying Ayuryedic medicine in India—a holistic approach to health and wellness centered on the balance of mind, body and spirit—combined with his belief that nutrition is the foundation to overall wellness. This philosophy, fueled by his frustration with weak regulation, conflicting messages and lack of quality products and information in the food and health industries, laid the groundwork for ALOHA.
Prior to founding ALOHA, Constantin founded five companies – the first at the young age of 14. Most recently, his company Brands4Friends, a fashion e-commerce site that grew to 1,000 employees across three countries in three years, was sold to eBay in 2011. He was named “Entrepreneur of The Year” by Harvard Business School and named “Exit Champion” for closing Germany’s largest Internet exit transaction. Constantin is the co-founder and host of the global “CEO Dinner Series” held in Berlin, New York, San Francisco, and London and the annual “CEO Berlin Conference” that both connect the world’s greatest entrepreneurs and leading minds.
An ardent kite surfer, Constantin broke the world record for kitesurfing from Alaska to Russia across the Bering Strait in summer of 2011. He organizes kitesurfing events for entrepreneurs with Sir Richard Branson on Necker Island.
Now living in the United States, he spends his time between New York City, San Francisco and Maui.
