Our History

What started in 1996 as a boutique venture firm, connected us with amazing entrepreneurs, venture funds, enterprise venture groups and acquisition teams, angels, incubators, universities and family offices. In 2001, we started building a university MBA network to help students learn about private equity.

Then, beginning in 2015, we began leveraging our 18 years of VC networks and 14 years of university programming to launch a new research business called G51 Amplify. This research helps our clients connect to interesting and strategic businesses, people and technology.

Although our partners and extended team continue to participate in direct investing, we are not raising a new venture fund. Rather, we are leveraging the assets of our collective network, expertise and wisdom to connect student preparation with opportunity, thus leading to the formation of G51 EDU.

With the creation and expansion of G51 EDU, our mission is to help visionary educators teach more efficiently while engaging students. To do this, G51 EDU produces and compiles unique, high-quality videos which can effortlessly be integrated into lesson plans. The accompaniment of lecture slides, case studies, quiz banks, and discussion topics – expertly crafted by our team – helps make our vision possible. You make it a reality.
