Our Story: Global Silicon Valley

GSV Capital Corp. (NASDAQ: GSVC) is a publicly traded investment fund that seeks to identify and invest principally in rapidly growing late stage venture capital-backed private companies. As a liquid, publicly traded stock, GSV is a unique vehicle that enables public investors to access an attractive asset class in which they otherwise may not be able to invest. Driven by fundamental structural change in the IPO market, which has resulted in significantly fewer IPOs with companies staying private longer, there are over 2,000 VC-funded private companies with a market value of $100 million or greater. GSV seeks to identify those leaders in specific sectors of the innovation economy that have the ability to deliver open-ended growth potential.

Diverse Portfolio of Game Changers

The firm's investment philosophy is based on studying the intersection of megatrends across growth sectors to identify "game changing" businesses with disruptive and innovative technologies and services. The company's portfolio of 46 primarily venture-backed companies represents the following five growth investment themes: Social Mobile, Cloud and Big Data, Marketplaces, Sustainability and Education Technology. The top 10 investments represent approximately 55.3% of total portfolio value, and the top three (Palantir, Dropbox and Spotify) represent approximately 26% of total portfolio value. Based on GSV's estimates, half of the fund's top ten portfolio companies achieved revenue growth of at least 100% in FY 2015.

Demonstrated Thought Leadership in Growth Investing

Shareholders are beneficiaries of a systematic and disciplined approach to identifying the stars of tomorrow, as well as a strategic investing ecosystem that draws on deep relationships with some of the world’s leading venture capitalists. Led by Founder and CEO Michael Moe, highly regarded as one of the nation’s leading growth stock experts, GSV’s accomplished management and advisory teams offer investors demonstrated thought leadership and longstanding experience in growth investing.
