    As a family-funded private equity firm, GCI is committed to fostering sustainable, mutually rewarding partnerships with passionate people who lead innovative companies. GCI was formed in 1986 by the late Gary Comer, founder of the renowned Lands' End apparel company. GCI strives to create partnerships with those that it invests in through substantial equity positions and patient capital for these companies to grow. Typically, GCI invests in early stage companies that offer products or services which currently produce sales. Without limited partners or a prescribed time frame, GCI has the flexibility to invest in companies outside of these parameters. The firm invests in growth oriented and top line focused companies that can command attractive margins.
