The company has offices in New Zealand, the US, the UK and Australia.
Founded in January this year, GD1 is a cross-border technology-focused fund with the majority of capital to be invested in New Zealand and Taiwanese startups with a focus on the US and Asian markets.
In May this year GD1 raised NZ$38 million (US$26 million) towards its second fund.
