Executive Summary
BUSINESS SUMMARY
Alliance Acquisitions, Inc. (“ALLIANCE”) is at the nexus of tomorrow’s emerging sectors – new media,
technology and entertainment. It is our belief that, while successful businesses are built upon the execution
of basic fundamentals, extraordinary companies excel in key areas, specifically having 1) a solid management
team with the ability to execute on a sound business plan, 2) easy access to capital, 3) strong partnerships,
and 4) a proprietary advantage over their competition. At ALLIANCE, our strength and experience in each of
these areas benefits all facets of our portfolio holdings, helping successful companies become extraordinary.


BUSINESS OVERVIEW
As a Business Development Company, ALLIANCE intends to institute a formulaic model for identifying
early-stage, undervalued opportunities and developing a clear path to growth with an exit strategy that
includes an IPO or merger/acquisition opportunity. ALLIANCE’s key executives have been involved in 10
entities that have successfully achieved publicly-trading status over the past seven years, with four of those
companies yielding returns for early-round investors of more than 60X, and the highest return to date
equaling 116X. In addition to public market opportunities, ALLIANCE will identify entertainment projects
that provide transmedia exploitation avenues, yielding additional value opportunities for our shareholders.


ALLIANCE’s executive management team has a solid history of experience in developing business plans for a
variety of organizations and we have also achieved success with our investments in many of those
companies. We have taken management positions as well as seats on Boards of Directors and have acted as
Advisors to every company with which we get involved. ALLIANCE will call upon this successful history of
leading early-stage technology, entertainment and new media companies towards access to capital in both
the public and private markets. We evaluate opportunities based upon their potential to benefit our
underlying business, our partner relationships, and the world at large.


CORPORATE STRUCTURE
Alliance Acquisitions, Inc. (www.alliance-acquisitions.com) intends to become a closed-end Business
Development Company that will invest in private and microcap businesses and opportunities. Our
investment objective will be to generate both current income and long-term capital appreciation through
equity investments. Currently, ALLIANCE is a Nevada Corporation, but we intend to file with the SEC to be
treated as a Business Development Company under the Investment Company Act of 1940 ("1940 Act"). As
such, we will be required to comply with a series of regulatory requirements under the 1940 Act as well as
applicable NASDAQ, federal and state rules and regulations. We will elect to be treated as a regulated
investment company under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986.

FORMULA FOR SUCCESS
ALLIANCE will look for companies and opportunities that fit the following criteria:
   Proprietary intellectual property
   Strong management team
   First-Mover advantage
   Growth industry
   Willingness to go public
   Substantial market opportunity
   Clear exit strategy


ACCESS TO CAPITAL
Over the years, our own investments in small, early-stage companies has influenced our thinking about the
process of “going public.” Taking the route to the public market enhances a company’s ability to raise capital
through the private placement of its unregistered shares of common stock. The opportunity to achieve
future liquidity is a significant factor for prospective investors of unregistered shares. Additionally, a
publicly traded company becomes a more credible enterprise in the minds of prospective shareholders, who
feel they have greater investor protection because the company is required to report to the Securities and
Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on a regular basis.


The public company process can be complex and intimidating, and those with experience to help a small
company with this undertaking, such as investment bankers, are normally unwilling to take on small
ventures and startups. Venture Capitalists and Angel Investors can provide seed funding, but often their
measures for success act in direct conflict to the ambitions of early-stage companies. Their agendas often
require companies to take courses of action that benefit very few, with an attitude that “money dictates
vision.”


It is our belief that founding management teams are the greatest source of knowledge and experience about
their respective industries, and that it is counter-productive and counter-intuitive to create a “dis-
incentivized” atmosphere within which to operate. In the end, if entrepreneurs want to preserve the
integrity of their vision, they must find a reliable method to manage the process and raise money directly for
their companies.


We have the ability to provide those entrepreneurs with a clear sense of direction, specific advice and hands-
on management support to bring their vision to tremendous fruition. Our founders have a track record of
proven successes, are entrepreneurs in our own right and have been C-level executives of early-stage public
companies. We have first-hand experience with public audits and financial filings, as well as a
comprehensive understanding of the rules and regulations of the SEC, FINRA and other regulatory entities.
We have seen our own public company’s share prices go from pennies to dollars on the public market,
creating tremendous value for our investor base.
