We help entrepreneurs change the world.

GV provides venture capital funding to bold new companies. We invest independently of Google, and we’ve backed more than 300 companies, including Uber, Nest, Slack, Foundation Medicine, Flatiron Health, and One Medical Group. We provide these companies unparalleled support in design, engineering, recruiting, marketing, and more.

Our investing strategy

We‘re looking for ambitious companies in every field, but we have a unique focus on machine learning and life science investing. Our team includes MDs, PhDs, and the world’s top computer scientists.

We’re backed by Google, who’s dedicated to funding big projects that make the world better. That means unique scope, scale, and long-term thinking for our investment strategy.
