Executive Expertise Without the Burn Rate

We partner with our portfolio companies to help them grow with been there, done that experience and empathy.

“There’s work and there’s your life’s work”, this mantra from my time in Silicon Valley has always struck a chord with me, and now at GD1 resonates even more deeply. At GD1 we’re not all cut from the same cloth, we’re a mix of engineers, operators, investors, and we care immensely about helping our founders and their teams realize their collective life’s work. That’s why when you partner with us it’s more than just capital. It’s global first hand experience coupled with empathy. It’s executive expertise without the addition to your monthly burn rate. It’s about making your work add up to something big, something that couldn’t happen anywhere else. Welcome to GD1."

“Smart Money” adds value above and beyond the investment. Finding  a “smart” investor is hard. They are the most likely to understand your value before others do, get excited about your business, and be able to help and thus de-risk their investment. GD1 is a perfect example of what smart money actually looks like.”
