Alumni Alliance was created based on the Crowd Street Funding model but with a unique twist. Our funding platforms offer “exclusivity” to certain groups, organizations, and industries. Instead of marketing to the masses, Alumni Alliance focuses on providing it’s investor clients exclusive previews to invest into companies which has a direct affiliation.
The first platform True North launched is targeted to graduates and their families from The University of Southern California (“USC”). Alumni and their families are offered an opportunity to invest directly with companies founded and/or run by graduates from the University. We feel it’s important to allow Alumni to support those who attended the same university. Typical crowd street platforms reach to the masses.
True North’s Private Equity Platform takes a direct exclusive approach. Not only will our Alumni receive exclusive investment opportunities, they’re also supporting fellow Alumni, and The University. We will be opening other college and university investment platforms, as well industry specific dedicated investment platforms.
