Her role included establishing key processes to ramp-up and support the investment activities (from building investment thesis to steering deal flow sourcing and building an ecosystem), mentoring the team on matters such as fundraising dynamics and term sheet negotiations, and sharing the learnings with the investing family.

At SPDG, she supported the family's heir and family office CEO in both strengthening the family’s involvement in the family business (D’Ieteren group, 2bn € in market cap on Euronext) and expanding the family office's diversifications across several asset classes, including venture capital. She has been both responsible for articulating the venture capital strategy around technologies that can address transportation challenges and implementing it, as to build a portfolio of ventures scattered over the US and Europe. Beyond the investment process, her role required working closely with portfolio companies as to enable their growth and empower their management team, according the family’s entrepreneurial values.
Prior to the family office, Allegra started her career in a corporate finance boutique (Semcap) that quickly diversified its consulting business with the launch of Belgium’s first equity-based crowdfunding platform (MyMicroInvest, a.k.a.
