GSV brings together a team of some of the world’s most successful investment professionals and influential business leaders.
In 2006, GSV founder Michael Moe introduced the world to his unique perspectives in Finding the Next Starbucks: How to Identify and Invest in the Hot Stocks of Tomorrow (Penguin Group).
Finding the Next Starbucks details criteria and techniques that form the foundation of the GSV investment process. It quickly became a business best-seller, going through three printings in five languages as well as earning raves from some of the investment community’s most respected voices.
This is an important book for both growth investors and entrepreneurs.
One of the most useful and essential guides about navigating our ever-shrinking and interconnected global marketplace to identify the kind of investment ideas that create wealth.
Headquartered in Silicon Valley, the GSV team is uniquely connected to a network of premier, VC-backed companies in emerging growth industries.
We’ve spent the past two decades hunting for the world’s most promising up-and-comers, relying on their systematic approach (link to Four Ps tab feature) to first identify the top 2,000 pre-IPO companies, and to then dissect each individual business to narrow down the cream of the crop.
GSV continues to leverage its deep experience, methodologies, and relationships to pick what we believe are the most brilliant, progressive businesses that impact lives and commerce in a profound way. And then we help smart investors get in early.
