"Genacast was instrumental in helping us focus our vision early on and then mentored us all the way through our growth and then eventual acquisition by Google. They're definitely the kind of investors you need with you in the trenches."
-- Andrew Toy, Divide (Acquired)
"When Genacast invested in Demdex, it was just me and a Powerpoint. Gil quickly identified my CTO/Co-founder who proved to be critical to our success. The Genacast team was instrumental in helping us close enterprise customers and securing follow-on funding, which led to our eventual sale to Adobe."
-- Randy Nicolau, Demdex (Acquired)
"Gil was consistently available, positive, and thoughtful in the assistance he gave Mortar. From the moment Genacast invested until the moment Mortar exited, Genacast was a pleasure to work with."
-- K Young, Mortar Data (Acquired)
"Strategic guidance coupled tactical expertise, Genacast represents the ideal modern investment partner. I'm ecstatic that we went to war with Gil and team."
-- James Foster, ZeroFox
"I remember the day I mentioned to Gil that I had an idea I’d been working on for a few months. Gil offered to take the Amtrak the next day to meet with us. We wound up having a four-hour session going over our concept and market opportunity. A few weeks after that, we were in Gil's office spending a full-day diving into technical details. That’s the kind of investor Gil is — he’s willing to roll up his sleeves and get really engaged on your business. And it’s why we decided that there was no better person to work with for our seed round."
-- Hemang Gadhia, Revmetrix
“Working with Gil and the Genacast team through the initial phases of the engagement has impressed me both in depth and style. They get enterprise focused tech companies and approach problems collaboratively not competitively. As a third time entrepreneur I get the value of having someone in your corner that understands the challenges of early stage enterprise software and is there to help build the business."
-- Dimitri Sirota, BigID
"Gil's efforts were instrumental in getting Rocketrip off the ground. We wouldn't be where we are today if not for him, period."
-- Dan Ruch, Rocketrip
"Gil and the Genacast team are awesome! They are always there to help with great advice, connections and always willing to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty if you want the help. Would partner with them again in a heartbeat."
-- Steve Barsh, PackLate
"Genacast has been instrumental to Jornaya's growth, and to me personally as a founder and CEO. As a former operator, Gil intrinsically understands the great challenges and opportunities that face any founder. Gil is well connected to the VC & Growth Equity markets, and his track record of success help make virtually any introduction across the venture community a positive one."
-- Ross Shanken, Jornaya
"Genacast Ventures provides a critical understanding with the entrepreneur, on top of experience, resources and an unparalleled network. It was immediately clear to me why so many successful entrepreneurs flock to Genacast. Gil is the entrepreneur's investor."
-- James Curran, Staq
Our portfolio is job one.
We are entrepreneurs ourselves and like to roll-up our sleeves and help our portfolio companies. The last company we funded is more important than the next one. If we can’t add value beyond our cash, we won’t invest.
