    Georgia Venture Partners (GVP) was established in 2004 to make seed and early-stage investments in life sciences enterprises related to Georgia. The Fund's purpose is twofold: 1) to achieve superior investment returns, primarily in the form of capital gains, by building and investing in debt and equity securities of a portfolio of companies, and 2) to increase economic development of life sciences in Georgia by seed or early-stage investments in life science entities. The firm invests through Georgia Venture Partners (the GVP Seed Fund), the largest seed-stage, Georgia-focused life sciences fund in the state with the major academic universities as its Limited Partners. The initial investment of the fund is between $100,000 and $500,000 with a total investment in a single company of $1 million. The firm's partners are also advisors to the State of Georgia Bioscience Seed Fund, a separate source of capital for companies. Established in 2000 by the Georgia State Legislature, the State of Georgia Bioscience Seed Fund invests side-by-side with accredited early-stage investors in life science companies based in Georgia.
