    Founded 1994, Grosvenor's strategy is to invest opportunistically in early and expansion-stage companies that have a sustainable competitive advantage, address large markets, and present a clear business plan to become cash flow positive within 18 to 24 months. On occasion, the firm will provide seed or very early stage financing in exceptional situations. Grosvenor seeks opportunities in industries which exhibit unusual growth opportunities (e.g. wireless, healthcare services and information technology services). In addition, Grosvenor will invest in promising companies in emerging new industries such as next-generation wireless, security technologies, and labor force management in the defense/homeland security arena. Grosvenor also strives to invest in small businesses that stimulate the economic development and create new jobs in local communities. Grosvenor's main office is located in the heart of downtown Washington, DC, which is designated a federal Enterprise City. Many Grosvenor portfolio companies are located in areas targeted for redevelopment by federal and state government and the firm's investment activities provide area revitalization and stabilization. Additionally, many Grosvenor portfolio companies provide permanent jobs primarily for individuals and families below 80 percent of the area(s) median income.
