We see lending as more than a loan.

We’re hyper-focused on helping great companies achieve their full potential. So, while our monetary contribution is the primary benefit, our growth lending platform incorporates key elements of the Silicon Valley formula: a collaborative mindset, a pioneering spirit, a fine-tuned balance of art and science, and a global network of partners.

What We Look For

We lend capital to two types of companies: Sponsored and Non-Sponsored. “Sponsored” simply refers to the presence of institutional equity owners (usually venture capitalists or private equity holders), while “Non-Sponsored” companies are usually bootstrapped by the founder(s) and haven’t typically taken institutional equity capital.

We usually lend between $2-15 million of debt across a variety of structures to companies looking for growth capital.assets-gsvgc-team-borrowers-chart
