GRP Partners was founded in 1996 with the mission to help entrepreneurs achieve their goals of building big, transformative businesses. The partners of GRP have been involved with many startups over the years, of which 15 stand out companies have achieved exit valuations above $1 billion. We’re proud of this accomplishment and the diversity of teams that we’ve backed – notably that all of our biggest wins have come from outside of Silicon Valley. Our last fund is the single best performing fund in the United States according to the independent industry database, Preqin. (Preqin 2000 Vintage Funds >$100mm)
Our traditional markets have been:
- Financial Services & Technologies
- Consumer & Retail Innovation
- Digital Media & Performance-based Marketing
- SaaS & Cloud Infrastructure
- Mobile Applications & Infrastructure
We believe that each of these industries will continue to go through profound disruption in the decades ahead. They represent large slices of the US economy and are industries to which we have dedicated our careers. We choose not to invest in industries where we have neither unique knowledge nor unique relationships that we can bring to bear.
