We are grateful to our 600+ VC GPs for the opportunity to participate in their underused prorata rights in later stage growth tech opportunities (now a $60b/year opportunity set), including new investments in 30 Madison, Apollo, BrightInsight, and ZenBusiness. This year we were blessed with the IPOs of Coupang, Coursera, Rover, Udemy, Vroom, Wish, as well as Alpha Partners Technology Merger Corp (NASDAQ: APTM), our first SPAC. And we are excited for our partner entrepreneurs at Gecko Robotics, Getaround, GoPuff, Included Health (aka Doctor on Demand), Lime, LiveIntent, Ro, and Socure for their banner 2021 year and what looks to be continued success in 2022. Without our entrepreneur, VC and LP partners over the last decade, none of these opportunities would have been possible.
Lastly, we are grateful for the 2021 additions to our growing team, including Sam, Jesse and Darmante as well as Chris and James to our advisory board.
We are very blessed and thankful.
In lieu of sending out cards, Alpha has made a donation to a local charity, the Trinitas Regional Medical Center’s Child and Adolescent Inpatient Psychiatric Unit, which assists homeless teens with 24/7 mental health care attention and shelter to assist in getting them back on their feet. Donations can be made here.
Be safe and well wishes,
Charlie, Brian, Dan, Michela, Darmante, James, Mike, Steve, Sean, David, Jesse, Sam (from left to right) and Mali, Matt, Erik, Chris, Sam, Videesha, Michael, Marc, Sa’ad (not pictured)
