Having come from an entrepreneurial family, Alexander Lumpias Bangsoy, son of an Igorot house-helper from Besao, Mountain Province, worked as a sidewalk vendor at a young age helping out in the family business.

His family handled a sari-sari store, traded knitting yarns and knitted wares. They recycled the refuse of hosiery factories in Pasig in the 70s and Alexander helped sell these at Baclaran.

When he was 11 years old, Bangsoy opened his comic book rental venture in their neighborhood where he learned the crucial factors of inventory tracking and turn-over.

In 1983, Bangsoy's family was forced to return home to Baguio City when they were ejected from their rented home at La Felonila, Quezon City with all their belongings thrown out on the street in full view of their neighbors.

This fueled Bangsoy to become a lawyer and entered the Ateneo College of Law and later on, build homes for Filipinos like him.

Alexander Bangsoy, later on, discovered his love for law and entered the Ateneo College of Law and graduated in 1991 with a degree of Doctor in Jurisprudence (JD), he passed the bar exam the following year.

To support his education, Bangsoy's father worked as an OFW cook at Dammam, Saudi Arabia while his mother traded vegetables and knitted wares.

While studying at the Ateneo Law School, Alexander sold knitted cardigans to his classmates, friends, and in Manila trade fairs.

During vacation, he sold knitted wares in their market stall and along Baguio's sidewalks.

Atty Alexander Bangsoy took up his Masters in Entrepreneurship at Asian Institute of Management (AIM) and graduated in 2007.

His company has now expanded to other provinces such as Cagayan, Pangasinan, and Pampanga.
