Ventures

Early-stage investments to help your company grow wherever you are.

Catalytic capital for the everywhere-else founder.

GAN Ventures is the investment arm of GAN. We invest in who you are and what you’re building, regardless of where you are. We believe that economic and social prosperity occur in cities large and small around the world because founders are able to make a lasting, positive impact in their communities through creating jobs, revenue, and companies that become local institutions.

The best of the community.

Every year, 71,000 applications come into GAN Accelerators and only 1,100 startups are accepted into programs. GAN Ventures chooses 15-20 companies to invest in across this community each year. Because of this scope, the GAN Ventures portfolio represents some of the best early-stage companies in the world.

What GAN Ventures Looks For

GAN Ventures invests in startup founders of companies that share the following traits:

  1. Passion
    The founding team joyfully knows more about their market than most people would think is normal to know about anything.
  2. Mission-Driven
    The founders truly believe they are changing at least a small part of the world and will stop at nothing until they do.
  3. Self-Aware
    The founders know their own strengths and weaknesses and aren’t afraid to ask for help.
  4. Solving a Real Problem in a Huge Market
    GAN Ventures focuses on venture-scale opportunities that have a logical path to a 10x, and a plausible path to a 100x, return on our investment.
