Alerion Ventures

Alerion Ventures

Alerion Ventures is an evergreen venture capital firm focused on early-stage investments in scalable startups. Based in Charleston, SC, Alerion partners with entrepreneurs primarily in the Southeast.

Founded in 2014, Alerion Ventures is a venture capital firm that is based in Charleston, South Carolina. The firm seeks to invest in early-stage businesses operating in the enterprise software and technology-enabled services sectors in the Southeast. Alerion will consider companies in a variety of industries so long as they are capital-efficient and targeting markets that allow for substantial scale and return on investment. They will not consider investments in consumer-facing companies, drug discovery, medical devices, energy production or project finance opportunities.

Alerion will first consider an investment once a company has achieved initial market and revenue traction following proof-of-concept including functional product development. While the primary focus is early-stage, opportunistic investments in growth-stage businesses with nearer term exit potential may also be considered. In all stages, Alerion prefers to partner with other experienced venture investors.

Based in Charleston, Alerion will consider investments in companies nationally aside from the West Coast and Northeast, but has a preference for those headquartered in the Southeast.
