    Description:

    Alerion Ventures is an evergreen venture capital firm focused on early-stage investments in scalable startups. Based in Charleston, SC, Alerion partners with entrepreneurs throughout the Southeast. Alerion Ventures targets one new company investment per quarter. Alerion will consider companies in a variety of industries, so long as they are capital-efficient and are targeting markets that will allow for substantial scale and return-on-investment. Primary areas of interest include business-to-business software and technology-enabled services and, more selectively, healthcare software and services and energy-efficient technologies. Alerion will not consider consumer-facing companies, drug discovery, medical devices, energy production, or project finance opportunities. While the primary focus is early-stage, opportunistic investments in growth-stage businesses with near term exit potential may also be considered. Based in Charleston, Alerion will consider investments in companies in the greater Southeast, but with a preference for those located in South Carolina and the neighboring states of Georgia and North Carolina.
