O'Reilly AlphaTech Ventures

O’Reilly AlphaTech Ventures (OATV) is in the business of funding disruptors, innovators, and hackers of the status quo.

We don't target hot markets or hot companies. If a market is hot, it’s likely comprised of multiple venture-funded companies looking to differentiate themselves along competitive lines defined by marketing spend. Additionally, if a company is hot, it’s likely priced well outside the scope of our investment strategy.

Instead, OATV targets themes gleaned from “watching the alpha geeks”. It’s our belief that the kinds of innovation that create new markets and long term value happen at the edge. At first, many of these technologies appear to be hobbies. They tend to come from people whose idea of fun is hacking away at code or hardware, not the local golf course fairway. They don’t look like the classic charismatic entrepreneur. 

We’re interested in upwards of eight themes at any given time, but we’re also open to being surprised. By definition, the most groundbreaking innovations don’t fit nicely into a box or within a predefined investment theme.
