We buy great little digital businesses
...off the beaten path.
Work with professionals
Alleyway Capital is an investment firm founded by a team of reputed investors, business operators and technology entrepreneurs. We are ecstatic about small digital businesses and are not chasing the most popular unicorn or the next big public company.
We almost always take a controlling stake in the businesses we buy and usually purchase them outright. We like software-as-a-service (SaaS) businesses, but occasionally also consider other types of tech-enabled businesses.
Our acquisition process is always transparent, respectful and leads to a quick outcome for all parties involved. We are not beholden to external investors and do not look to flip the businesses we buy.
