We are a syndicate of >1,100 accredited investors who invest in venture backed companies

We aggregate demand from our members and then approach founders to secure allocations.

For founders:

We will either approach the founder or the founder can request a referral from an existing Alliance member. We do not offer a way for founders to directly submit deals to the Alliance
