About Us


Alicorn seeks to invest in a portfolio of leading growth/late stage and pre-IPO, venture-backed, private companies. Due to the availability of capital, companies are growing larger and staying private for longer, shifting returns from public to private markets.

Leveraging its global, proprietary network, Alicorn believes it is well placed to access securities in companies at attractive discounts to last funding rounds through secondaries as well as hard-to-get primary securities issuance. Alicorn has experienced, well-networked investment and advisory committees with global reach, supported by the services of a specialist asset manager, Arowana, from its London office.


Arowana was founded in Sydney, Australia in 2007. It has delivered strong returns to date, including after the global financial crisis. Today, Arowana is a diversified investment group with operations primarily in Australia and South East Asia as well as the United Kingdom and the United States. Led by 3 experienced principals and a team of 19 professionals located across 4 main offices. At Arowana we believe we are “investors” not “asset gatherers”. We pride ourselves on this distinction having returned capital frequently to investors and only raising capital when we identify differentiated, compelling opportunities for our partners
