Alpha Ventures is actively monitoring the enterprises in its portfolio, providing them with assistance on financial, legal and strategy matters during the initial financing stage as well as later on.

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 specialist 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 to 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, 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.
