Second Alpha Partners
Thought leaders in providing liquidity for shareholders

Innovative Capital Solutions

for private companies & their shareholders
Times have changed.

Building private companies takes more effort, dedication and capital than ever before. And achieving company exits by trade sale or IPO takes more than double the time that it did a decade ago. As a result, founders, executives and investors face tremendous challenges maintaining a collective focus on corporate aspirations while also pursuing their own individual return objectives.

Second Alpha Partners can help. Second Alpha crafts innovative capital solutions that allow founders, managers and investors in private companies to achieve liquidity prior to company sales or IPOs. Second Alpha buys shares and convertible securities on a secondary basis.

Founders

Thinking about finally putting cash in the bank? If done carefully with the right investor, taking a little – or a lot – off the table can be good for you.

Management

Realign your shareholders behind a common growth strategy. Rationalize your company’s cap table. Reinvigorate your investor base.

Angels

You invested early and might want to consider some options to take home some or all of your return without waiting for the final company exit.

VC & PE Funds

Discrete liquidity for funds that want to get out, when they want to get out. Solutions for investor syndicates that need to replace a member.

Corporates

Solutions for investments that are no longer strategic, or for when corporate balance sheets could benefit from returning some capital.
