GSV is a leading Silicon Valley growth investor devoted to finding and aligning with the most dynamic, fastest growing businesses in the world—the companies we call “the stars of tomorrow.” GSV has invested in game-changing companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Dropbox, Snap, Lyft, and Spotify.

In literal terms, Silicon Valley is just a small area—less than 50 miles between San Francisco and San Jose. But its influence? To say massive would be a massive understatement. A remarkable percentage of the most innovative and successful companies—especially high tech enterprises—call this magical region home. It’s the undisputed hub for up-and-comers, representing nearly half of the VC investment in all of the U.S. Yet Silicon Valley extends far beyond northern California, and even North America. That’s where the “G” in “GSV” comes in. We believe that Silicon Valley is no longer a spot on a map. It’s a mindset.

This small region near the Bay Area has singlehandedly redefined entrepreneurism and, in many ways, business in general. Today, “Silicon Valley” stretches around our planet—roughly 57 million square miles of land on earth. Talk about impressive growth. It represents an addiction to constant innovation. A devotion to the brightest talent. An appetite for boldness. A magnet for capital and growth investors. It’s the ambitious pursuit of a destiny achieved by the likes of Apple, Google, Facebook, Cisco, Intel, HP, and eBay—by companies that are, at present, far more humble.

And GSV exists to help them fulfill that promise.

These rates are for August 1, 2019 through July 31, 2020.
