    Founded in 1999, Gabriel Venture Partners is a hands-on, early-stage venture capital firm with offices in Silicon Valley and the Mid-Atlantic, managing over $260 million. The Gabriel I & II funds were created by Gabriel Investment Company to help build the emerging market leaders in the Communications and Networking, Information Technology, and Internet industries. Gabriel invests in technology companies across a wide array of industries - from energy efficient LED light sources and algae biodiesel, to college text book rental services and noise cancellation technology for next-generation cell phone headsets. Gabriel invests a total of $3 million-$6 million for a significant ownership stake in capital efficient companies that require no more than $15M of venture capital over their life to reach either cash flow positive operations, an exit, or a significant valuation to raise growth capital if needed. Gabriel focuses its investments on companies with a presence in the West and East Coasts.
