Grand Prix Capital (GPC) is a private venture capital and investment firm specialized in rapid growth, start-up, private and microcap listed businesses.

The GPC name and logo point to our mission - to make the businesses we deal with winners in an environment where speed of execution is often of tantamount importance.

To GPC finding the right "driver" is just as important as the business model because we deal only with ventures to which we can "add value". Given the right driver and the right business our role is to hop on board as a mentor and navigator for the race. We not only put fuel in the tank but bring in the pit crew and the array of connections and services needed by any rapid growth business.
