    Founded in 1984, Geocapital Partners has been a leading venture capital firm focused on investments in young businesses in information services and technology in both North America and Europe. The firm has managed over $500 million in a series of partnerships that were primarily funded by large institutional investors. Geocapital is now focused on very early stage opportunities; finding entrepreneurs who have bootstrapped themselves into the post-startup stage of early revenue generation, for whom experienced equity partners, along with half a million to a few million dollars of equity capital, would be attractive. Geocapital makes such investments on a very selective basis using primarily the partners' own funds. The firm typically maintains a minority equity position in its portfolio companies, providing initial financing ranging from $2 million to $20 million.
