Direct Investment

Gingko Capital focuses on venture co-investment opportunities. We serve as a lead investor or invest alongside other leading private equity firms, targeting opportunities that offer exceptional equity appreciation potential as a result of their proprietary technologies, experienced management teams, and unique market position.

Exclusive, Preferential Deal Flow
As a private equity fund-of-funds, we have strong relationships with top-tier fund managers that provide us with access to deals not available to most firms. We review approximately 100 highly-qualified deal opportunities per year, allowing us to be highly selective. Additionally, fund managers often contact Gingko Capital first when seeking additional equity capital.

Proprietary Due Diligence
Gingko Capital’s proprietary database contains 20 years of private equity transaction data. We use this data to gauge the attractiveness of managers, sectors, and companies and supplement it with insight from our long-standing relationships with other private equity professionals around the world.

Co-investment
Gingko Capital is one of the most active co-investors in venture transactions. Our programs can co-invest anywhere from $1 million to $10 million per transaction and can complete necessary due diligence to close the deal in 2 to 3 weeks if required.

We invest alongside fund managers that have exceptional industry knowledge, cultural familiarity, and investment expertise. Our strategy includes building a portfolio diversified by sector, geography, year, investment thesis, size, sponsor fund manager, and end markets.
