Our primary differentiator is Alpha, the premier technology network of more than 2,000 founders, CEOs, investors, and thought leaders that provides an unfair advantage for Crosslink and its portfolio companies. Founded in 2005, Alpha is an invite-only networking community for founders, CEOs, and leading technology influencers. The idea is simple: to create an environment where leaders in technology can connect and collaborate with their peers in a private setting where they can speak candidly. Alpha curates events that foster strong professional and personal relationships. We bring together the brightest people on a subject, theme or technology trend and let them decide where to take the conversation. Alpha hosts 60 events per year across 7 cities (New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, Toronto, Boston and Chicago).



Intimate, round table dinners with 15 founders, CEOs and thought leaders. The moderator facilitates the discussion amongst all attendees help drive the candid, off the record conversation.
