Alpha co-invests with the world’s best VCs by sharing economics with Early-Stage VCs

ALPHA Partners

Network Driven Growth Capital

We partner with Early-Stage VCs to double down in their leading companies. Small, specialist VCs are the first funders of 80% of unicorns and tech IPOs, but 90% of the time, these first funders lack the capital to follow on in their growth stage winners. Alpha is purpose built to solve this capital gap for Early-Stage VCs. As a result, Alpha invests in top-tier growth equity rounds led by the world’s best investors.

How we increase returns for Early-Stage VCs

Alpha Partners enables Early-Stage Venture Capitalists to capitalize on their later stage winners.

For Limited Partners

Alpha’s Growth Equity Model targets Venture returns at lower risk and duration.
