GSV Advisors is in many ways a "modern merchant bank"—transforming the legacy concept of private equity capitalization that helped fuel the Industrial Revolution. Rather than manufacturing, we're focused on the Education champions of today and tomorrow—the pioneers of technology, intellectual property, communities and social marketplaces, innovative learning environments and institutions, influencers of academic policy, and so on.

More specifically, as a member of FINRA/SIPC, we provide merger and advisory and private placement services. Leveraging over 20 years of experience that each of our principals has in our key domains, we have collectively completed 283 transactions totaling more than $41.2 billion.

And we're also experienced entrepreneurs, having previously founded, grown, and sold global growth investment bank ThinkEquity Partners.

Our clients are innovative and emerging companies as well as large, sophisticated industry leaders. They retain our services in order to leverage our domain expertise, entrepreneurial experience, and extensive relationships. We align and partner with our clients through equity participation and active engagement in all aspects of the business where we can bring value.

Our Commitment to America's Youth

GSV Advisors is dedicated to helping education entrepreneurs connect with value added and strategic investors and partners to facilitate their ideas becoming the next market leading company.

Additionally we aspire to help catalyze interactions within the education ecosystem to foster innovation and network connections.
