Company Building Library Lounge

GCT is Company Ventures’ annual no rent, no equity Residency for early-stage teams and entrepreneurs.

As a founder, your odds of success greatly depend on your speed to solve challenges or seize opportunities, your output relative to input, and the degree of alignment between your intentions and their impact.

Over the course of seven years, we have developed an approach to community curation and programming to give founders in the crucial early-stages the ideal environment in which to thrive.

Each year GCT gathers ~25 pre-series A companies and founders. We screen for deep domain expertise and entrepreneurial experience, ultimately selecting founders emblematic of the diversity of NYC who aspire to be part of a tight-knit community of high-achieving operators with a shared set of values.

Kate Ryder Portrait

GCT was invaluable in getting us from our earliest stages of growth to where we are now. The leadership team helped us with everything from fundraising, to corporate introductions, to our product. The community of founders have been wonderful to meet and helpful to learn from. I couldn’t recommend joining more!
