About Us

Benhamou Global Ventures (BGV) is an early-stage venture capital firm based in Silicon Valley. Like the talented entrepreneurs we work with we share a passion and commitment for building valuable companies; and especially those that drive the digital transformation of enterprises.

We place particular emphasis on cloud technologies; virtual and software defined networking; productivity-based applications; cyber security, mobility and the Internet of Things. These companies will already have a product or proof of concept validated by a few customers and seek the expertise of the BGV team to fine tune and scale their marketing and sales plans. Targeted opportunities will tend to exploit three fundamental disruptive shifts:
1.“Extending” the enterprise to a new mobile perimeter of users and “Things”
2.“Virtualizing” infrastructure and applications through cloud architectures
3.“Defending” core assets against cyber threats of all types

We are a team of people that combine many years of investment experience with successful senior operating roles in major global companies. This has enabled us to establish a powerful network of technical advisors, executives and functional experts who will actively engage with our portfolio companies. Together we are able to offer our entrepreneurs substantial expertise, resources and strong connections.

“We are often the first and most active institutional investor. Our goal is to partner with our CEO’s to provide the support and advice they need, in order to build game changing companies”

Anik Bose, General Partner

The BGV team’s operating backgrounds enables them to brings a unique perspective to investing in cross-border technology firms and working with entrepreneurs to build them into global leading companies.

Julio Casales, CEO/Founder Survela
Garret Gafke
In evaluating investment partners we selected BGV during a oversubscribed financing round, one where the company was courted by multiple VC firms. The entire BGV partnership team has outstanding operating backgrounds and understands the complexities of scaling companies from start-up to billion dollar businesses. It was important for me that Eric, Anik, and Eric were always available and reinforced their commitment to provide operational and strategic value.  I am a firm believer in BGV’s overall philosophy in adding the value actually requested by the entrepreneur instead of becoming a lead balloon for the executive team to manage (unlike other venture firms who tout their value add).  For me this translated to a patient and ideal investment partner on all fronts
Garret Gafke, CEO Identity Mind
