In the last 25 years, we have founded 20 tech companies, six of which we have sold.

Join us as an investor or LP.

"We are moving clearly into a new super cycle"

Artificial Intelligence is emerging as the new super cycle. As it gains momentum, we can expect prolonged economic growth (CAGR 2024-2030: 15.83%), increased GDP, and a surge in service demand—leading to higher prices and welfare.

AI Growth forcast CAGR 2024-2030: 15.83%

The AI industry is poised for rapid expansion by 2030, with all sectors showing promising growth. StudioAlpha is strategically positioned to leverage this cycle.


In the U.S., over 70% of venture capitalists are former founders who have transitioned from building their own companies to investing in others like us. In contrast, this rate drops to less than 30% in Europe.

For emerging companies, partnering with investors who boast entrepreneurial experience can be invaluable. They possess a firsthand understanding of your challenges and can offer empathetic, experienced-based guidance.

go where the money is

Before the COVID pandemic, the U.S. saw venture capital investment five times greater than that in Europe, despite Europe having a third more population. However, both regions fund a roughly similar number of startups.

This comparison, though, doesn’t paint the full picture. The U.S. benefits from a single, unified market with one primary language and a consolidated legal framework, unlike Europe’s 47 diverse nations, each with its own tax regulations. Consequently, Germany, Europe’s largest single market, is still 26 times smaller than the USA, illustrating a different scale of opportunity from an investor’s perspective.

Startups fortified in the US have a greater opportunity to thrive globally and can then effectively conquer European and other markets.
