Culture

Values are the bedrock of the best organizations.

From GAN's staff culture, to the accelerators in our community, to the companies we partner with, and the ventures we fund, you're looking at a network firmly rooted in these beliefs.

Our Values

Culture at GAN

Humanity.

Create environments where people are empowered to fulfill who they set out to be.

Service.

Exhibit a level of selflessness that makes people question our sainthood.

Integrity.

Deliver what we say we’ll deliver, and be honest early and often when we face challenges.

Action.

Get stuff done. Continually grow and evolve based on the needs of our community, and work to proactively know those needs.

Celebration.

Pop a cork when people reach greater heights. After all, getting stuff done doesn't mean you have to be boring.

Balance.

Define your own "enough" and create boundaries around it. Find ways to invest in yourself, your company, your family, and your community in ways that are nourishing to you.

Marty Bauer

With his secret-weapon smile, Marty is building partnerships between startups and GAN Partners through meaningful startup engagement.
