GSV Capital (NASDAQ: GSVC) is a publicly traded investment fund that seeks to identify and invest in rapidly growing, late stage, venture capital-backed private companies. GSVC is a unique public fund that gives growth equity investors access to private companies with huge potential. Peer into our portfolio and you’ll find market makers and risk takers, history makers and record breakers, life savers and game-changers. Once upon a time, investors could buy shares of young, exciting businesses through IPOs, but company leaders no longer see the benefits of going public early in their life cycle.GSVC at a glance
GSV’s investment philosophy draws on decades studying the intersection of megatrends across growth sectors to identify transformational businesses with disruptive and innovative technologies and services. It is our belief, based on our research and experience, that a disproportionate number of the big winners are found by focusing on themes where significant change and growth are taking place. The GSVC portfolio of 40-50 companies spans five key growth themes: Cloud + Big Data, Education Technology, Social/Mobile, Marketplaces, and Sustainability.
Additionally, we’ve found that companies embodying GSV’s “4Ps” Framework—People, Product, Potential, and Predictability—represent a disproportionate share of the most successful and promising businesses. Based on GSV’s estimates, at least half of GSVC’s Top 10 portfolio companies achieved revenue growth of 100% or greater in 2015.
Brought to market as a single portfolio, GSVC is the first publicly traded security enabling virtually any investor—from large institutions, to sophisticated family offices and advisors, to ordinary individuals—to participate in the upside potential of these dynamic private businesses.
GSVC shareholders reap the benefits of our systematic and disciplined approach to identifying what we call “the Stars of Tomorrow”—as well as our strategic investing ecosystem (our “Constellation”) that leverages deep relationships with some of the world’s most respected entrepreneurs, institutions, and venture capitalists.
