commitment to long-term relationships

In its home markets, GLSV seeks to be the lead investor or an active co-investor. Through the proximity of its offices in local markets, GLSV is able to establish a close relationship with its investees. This facilitates on-going advice and support, additional finance for follow-on rounds as well as access to its international network of advisors. The commitment is long-term offering flexible assistance to the changing needs of growing companies. Outside of the home markets, GLSV only acts as a knowledgeable co-investor.
