Alta Berkeley is a premier European venture capital firm, focused on identifying exceptional young technology companies based in Europe and Israel, and leveraging our wealth of experience and industry contacts to help them become commercially successful in the global market.
We focus on finding leading communications and computing technology teams based in Europe and Israel and assisting them to build global companies by harnessing our investing partners' own entrepreneurial experience of growing successful technology companies and bringing them to successful exit via public offerings and trade sales.
Our investment methodology is similar to that used by top tier US venture capital firms, characterized by partners with relevant industry background, a deep understanding of technology and high-level contacts at the leading global technology companies. This approach has been honed over a long history of investing success – and a few that never reached their full-potential – to form an invaluable bank of knowledge for start-ups.
Since 1982 we have raised six venture funds and backed over one hundred companies through both bull and bear markets. In the process, we have helped create considerable value for our portfolio companies and for our own investors, including listings on five different public markets (including Nasdaq and LSE) and trade sales both in Europe and in the US.
