We are pleased to share that Jeffrey De Flavio, MD has joined the AlleyCorp team as an Entrepreneur in Residence to build companies with us and to advise our team and portfolio.

Dear AlleyCorp Community,

We, like most others, have felt a deepening sense of dislocation and crisis over the past quarter.

From an investment perspective, I believe this is a rare opportunity to facilitate human connection at impressive scale, and that worldwide demand for building communities will only grow. Meetup is in an incredibly good position to facilitate that growth: the platform has an extensive user base and…


We found and fund transformative companies in New York and beyond, partnering with determined early stage entrepreneurs who know the future is just beginning.
