At Alpha Novae we understand the difficulties and the challenges associated to the launch of a proprietary trading activity, whatsoever its form: asset management, hedge fund, prop shop, signal or algo provider, etc.
From the alpha discovery research to the start of the live operations with the building of a real track record, and from the start of the live trading to the growth of the assets under management, we know that the road can be long, difficult and quite bumpy.
And as a bootstrapped business ourselves, we also fully understand the problematic that start-up trading shops are facing: to generate an interesting alpha beating the competition, and to reassure important investissors, it is required to have a serious technology infrastructure… but to be able to afford this infrastructure it is required to have an already successful business or important investissments. Something sounding like a certain story with eggs and chickens…
Because one of our main missions is to help you make the institutional leap forward, we decided to create the Alpha Incubator.
