Noah Alper is a consultant to aspiring entrepreneurs and a dynamic motivational speaker. His experience includes concept creation, marketing, retailing, food service and sales management. In his new book, he weaves together Jewish ethical teachings and over 35 years of business and non-profit management experience.
Six and a half years after founding Noah’s New York Bagels, he sold the business for $100 million. At that time, it was the largest Kosher retailer in the United States. He is also the founder of six other ventures, including the grocery store company, Bread & Circus, once the Northeast’s largest natural foods chain and now part of Whole Foods Market.
Noah has been a guest speaker at Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley; Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University; University of Wisconsin School of Business; as well as many national and local business and community groups. He is also a student advisor at the Graduate School of Business at Stanford University.
Noah has been very involved in the Jewish community in the Bay Area. He was the founding president of the Jewish Community High School of the Bay, which is now in its ninth year, and he is still a member of that Board. He is vice-president of Congregation Beth Israel in Berkeley, CA, and has been a member of the board of the Jewish Community Foundation. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a BA in Economics, and in 1997, he fulfilled a dream of living in Israel and attended the Pardes Institute in Jerusalem. He grew up in Brookline, Massachusetts, and currently lives in Berkeley, California.
