Launched in 2015, by co-founders Norm and Craig Peterson, Growth Capital Ventures ("GCV") has evolved over the last 5 years, but the mission has remained focused…

To back the game changers, the innovators and value creators. Those who make a positive difference to the way we live and work.

Whether that’s Atom Bank - the UK’s first app only and most trusted bank, or HIVE.HR - a tech startup that’s transforming the way businesses engage employees and strengthen culture; the mission is the same, identify and back those businesses with the potential to grow, create value and make a positive impact.

The Market

Alternative Investments and Alternative Finance solutions will be more important than ever post Covid-19 pandemic. The Alternative Finance sector was born out of the 2008 recession and as an asset class, Alternative Investments including Alternative Asset Classes such as Venture Capital and Private Equity will be needed to support the world’s economic recovery.

“We believe that entrepreneurs will be at the heart of the world’s economic recovery as they find ways to address fundamental changes in the way societies live and work. It’s vital that they can access the funding they need to get their ideas off the ground,”
Index Ventures Partner, Jan Hammer

“Crisis tends to breed innovation. As the world changes, greenfield opportunities are emerging. The influential companies of the next decade and beyond are being determined now. Those that can reimagine their business with the most effective use of technology innovations will be the ones to succeed.”
Google CTO office Managing Director, Will Grannis

"As Venture Builders and early stage investors - this is critical time to fund and build high growth businesses. Backing the entrepreneurs and innovators that turn "set backs into springboards for opportunities" - this is worthy investing - backing and building the businesses that will play a key role in creating new jobs and driving the recovery phase."
Norm Peterson - Chief Executive Officer at Growth Capital Ventures
