Zurich-based Alpha Associates has launched the Alpha Future Fund with the support of the Swiss foundation for future funds, Zukunftsfonds Schweiz, which also laid extensive groundwork for the project. Operating with a focus on venture capital (VC), the fund’s purpose is to help institutional investors in particular not only to tap into the growth potential inherent in pioneering technologies within Switzerland and Europe as a whole, but also to create jobs with a view to the future. The foundation does not intend to participate in the fund’s activities itself, but remains committed to improving the conditions in which VC financing and scaleup companies in Switzerland are able to work.
