GV overview

Launched as Google Ventures in 2009, GV is the venture capital arm of Alphabet, Inc. It has invested in more than 450 companies globally in the fields of life science, healthcare, artificial intelligence, robotics, transportation, cyber security, and agriculture. Initially focusing on Seed investments, the company has turned to more mature companies in recent years. It operates independently from Google.

As well as providing its portfolio companies with financing, GV also offers support in product management, engineering, design and marketing.

GV was founded in 2009 with an initial $100m capital commitment. Within three years, the commitment was tripled, and the fund had $2bn under management. In 2014 GV announced it was to invest in European startups, committing $125m.

As of 2019, GV has more than $4.5bn under management with over 300 active portfolio companies. In 2019 alone it has seen three exits - Uber, Slack and Managed by Q.

GV has offices in the US and the UK.
