What we look for

/ 01

Business life-stage

Industry focus

AlphaCode Venture Partners focuses on financial services (banking and payments, lending, insurance, savings and investments, asset management), and tangential industries (e.g. education, health, agriculture and climate), where there may be an embedded financial services value proposition or application.
