GV (launched as Google Ventures in 2009) is a wing of Alphabet Inc., the parent company to Google and all the other brainchild companies of Larry Page and Sergey Brin.
GV is more than just a venture capital investment firm, it’s a company designed to coax the very best results possible out of each and every startup it takes on. They have a team of engineers, designers, physicians, scientists, marketers and investors who’re ready at the helm to help your startup succeed in the marketplace.
If your company fits into the framework of their typical investment, Google Ventures may be the perfect fit, when considering their big pockets and the unlimited access to resources they undoubtedly have.
As one would imagine, the company has a lot of high profile investments to boast in the short time they’ve been around including Uber, Jet, Nest, Tunein, Medium, One Medical, Editas, FLATIRON, Founders, Orbital Insight, Farmers Business Group, Slack, Gusto, Core OS, Hubspot, AngelList, Docusigns, Carbon3D, Jaunt, and so many more.
Perhaps GV is the most diverse industry portfolio of any investor on this list.
