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.

Alpha Partners featured in Forbes Midas Touch weekly newsletter

Alpha’s Co-Founder, Brian Smiga was recently featured Forbes Midas Touch Newsletter. New York-based growth equity firm Alpha Partners looks to profit there, partnering with early-stage investors to help them keep doubling down on pro rata investments in their companies as they grow. Brian Smiga, a co-founder and managing partner at the firm, argues that early-stage investors have unique skill sets that can stay beneficial to founders later on but can be lost if they don’t maintain their stakes and board seats. “We think it’s a dance between operator type early-stage investors and the operating excellence of late-stage VCs,” Smiga says. “You need a certain kind of investor to take it to a halfway point, but you should keep that early-stage talent around as well.”
