Allegis CapitalReturn to Company Database
Our 35 corporate partners have been carefully selected because of specific expertise in their executive teams, the power of their brand and market positions in key consumer and business markets and their complementary (versus competitive) relationships with each other, thereby multiplying the size and potential of our combined network for entrepreneurs.
At Allegis, we have assembled a unique team of General Partner and Venture Partners who are committed to actively working with our portfolio companies to find the connections they need to succeed. Our team is involved in a hands-on way, working to find the best points of leverage within our corporate partners. This enables entrepreneurs to access operating executives, to test environments to validate new product concepts, provides market intelligence, and aids branded distribution networks.
