INDIANAPOLIS — April 19, 2021 — High Alpha, a leading venture studio located in Indianapolis, was named the most active investor in the state of Indiana by CBInsights’s annual report, The United States Of Venture Capital.
According to CBInsights’s recap of VC investments in 2020, despite the global pandemic, VC funding to US-based companies has thrived, hitting a new all-time high. Although startups based in California, New York, and Massachusetts have traditionally accounted for the majority of VC tech investment in the US, VCs are spurring other hotbeds of innovation across the country -- including the Midwest.
This is the third consecutive year that High Alpha has received this recognition for its investment in the Midwest. Over the course of 2020, High Alpha launched an all-time high of 10 new enterprise cloud software companies. Since its founding in 2015, the firm has launched 28 businesses and invested in over 60 founders.
This follows the recent launch of High Alpha Capital’s $110M third fund. High Alpha has also doubled down on expanding operations in the Midwest by recently completing a new 42,000 square foot office and community space in Indianapolis’s Bottleworks District, which they hope to become a primary hub for entrepreneurship in the Midwest.
