Entrepreneur set to increase ties to campus

by Don Dodson

CHAMPAIGN — Alex Bratton has founded 10 technology companies, and he’s intent on bringing some of them to Champaign-Urbana.

Bratton, a University of Illinois alumnus who describes himself as “half geek, half entre- preneur,” says he’s eager to esta- blish more ties with campus.

Last week, one of his companies, Lisle-based Lextech Global Services, announced it would open an office in the EnterpriseWorks building in the UI Research Park.

Initially, it will employ a team of six, and Bratton said he hopes to add more teams down the road.
