Criteria

High-growth and select cyclical-growth industries.

We look to invest in industries with strong underlying growth and in businesses where incremental capital can generate attractive returns on investment and further accelerate growth, both organically and through acquisitions. GCP looks for businesses at inflection points in their operating models, often post VC-funding, but pre-IPO or larger scale private equity capital
