Despite my association with Alumni Ventures for only about a year, I have found them deliberate and diligent in evaluating portfolio companies they recommend. The support staff as well as the portfolio managers are capable subject experts and are willing to give their time to explain the investment philosophy to even a novice like myself, truly a world-class organization.
