Founded in 2011, G Squared is a growth-stage venture capital firm based in Chicago Illinois. The firm is aligned to a fundamental shift - venture-backed companies stay private longer. As a result, private companies need both primary capital to continue their growth trajectory and transitional capital to provide liquidity to early investors, current and former employees, and other sellers. The firm partners with portfolio companies throughout their lifecycle using a fundamentally different approach than traditional VCs. The firm invests in companies that challenge the status quo and demonstrate a clear path to superior returns, partnering with entrepreneurs tackling big problems. The firm seeks to invest in the big data, cloud computing, marketplaces, Mobile, Fintech, Insurtech, Social Media and Sustainability sectors. It has its regional offices in Connecticut, California, Illinois and Zurich.
