Alpha Ventures spearheads the Group’s investment activities in Private Equity/Venture Capital and to this date has carried out investments in enterprises active in various sectors in Greece and abroad.
Alpha Ventures is also able to attract investors from Greece or abroad or organise financing through bilateral or syndicated loans.
The Company is actively monitoring the enterprises of its portfolio, providing them with assistance on financial, legal and strategy matters both during the initial financing stage as well as later on.
In addition, it also offers support in areas that are crucial for sound and sustained enterprise growth, such as:
access to capital markets through the introduction in the Stock Exchange,
business alliances, commercial associations, mergers and acquisitions,
attraction of new staff,
entry into new markets.
In addition to the above, the participation of Alpha Ventures in the share capital of a rapidly growing company contributes the authority of a reliable institutional investor and provides access to the products and services of the Alpha Bank Group.
The Company is staffed by specialised executives possessing significant knowledge and experience and the drive to seek business partners for financing and supporting their growth. The skills of its human resources, its attention to detail and the sense of responsibility towards the customer, combined with its size and investment capabilities, make Alpha Ventures one of the leading Private Equity/Venture Capital companies in Greece.
Our priority is on Greek companies and on companies active in the wider region of Southeastern Europe which are characterised by predictable cash flows and clear growth prospects, and on investments with a predetermined period for liquidation, either via internal cash flow or via their sale to a strategic investor or listing on a regulated capital market. In this context, five new investments worth Euro 14 million are planned, while we also plan to liquidate three of our participations.
