Profile

Launched as Google Ventures in 2009, GV originated as an independent venture capital firm for innovative founders. While today we're formally known as GV, our previous moniker (Google Ventures) is the root of our DNA. With Alphabet as our sole limited partner, we focus all our energy on meeting and supporting founders at the earliest stages of company-building. GV's operating partners work to support startups across design, equity, diversity & inclusion, talent, and engineering. GV also helps startups interface with Google, providing unique access to the world's best technology and talent. GV operates on long time horizons and deals in decades — not rounds. At launch, we had a $60 million capital commitment and a desire to partner with founders moving the world forward. Today, GV has over $8 billion in assets under management, 400 active portfolio (https://www.gv.com/portfolio) companies across North America and Europe, and notable investment outcomes including Uber (https://www.uber.com/), Nest (https://store.google.com/us/category/connected_home), Slack (https://slack.com/), GitLab (https://gitlab.com/users/sign_in), Duo Security (https://duo.com/), Flatiron Health (https://flatiron.com/), Verve Therapeutics (https://www.vervetx.com/), and One Medical (https://www.onemedical.com/). We got into venture capital for the venture (and the adventure) — to help founders take on the world's biggest challenges, knowing that part of their preparation requires capital. But it also requires the right mindset, building the right team, developing the right product, and picking a partner for the journey with the know-how for giving support and space to grow and learn.
