Early Stage Growth focus

Early-Stage Growth

Sean created a formula for success. For entrepreneurs, building an idea into a product or service is just the beginning. Having access to investment capital is important, too, but a critical element to the real success of any early-stage company is being able to get advice and help from professionals.

Sean’s alchemy for investment includes a mix of capital and expertise. He looks for strong companies that have innovative products or services and builds relationships with the people he’s investing in. He reaches out to his vast network – professionals from his own company, experts at other companies he’s invested in, community leaders and beyond – to bring the right mix of knowledge to each project.

Through his network, Sean is able to deliver a full complement of assistance to early stage startups that helps them build infrastructure – from operations, legal teams, and marketing stacks, to processes that foster scale, value, and profitability. Designing throughput systems that generate revenue with little maintenance, Sean also offers the know-how and muscle of his own a top-tier internet marketing organization to ensure ongoing success.

Putting the venture in VC

Putting the Venture in VC

In the past 15 years, Sean has brought more than 50 companies to full profitability. He has grown his own small empire of tech-based firms (see below), and a full-fledged marketing agency. He credits his early insight for the need for systems and scale for every success he’s had, but also credits the community of experts who put in valuable time and give advice freely.

For Sean, VC as an adventure every day. An opportunity to reach back and lift up companies when they need it most, infusing capital, ideas, and enthusiasm to young startups just as they are vulnerable, but poised for growth.

Sean Brown Proves Putting People Over Profits Pay Off

Since the Internet has become a part of everyday life, disruptors have emerged in nearly every single industry: Uber changed the transportation business, AirBNB changed the lodging business, and when it comes to venture capital, this Orange County native is changing the way businesses and private equity are working together. The man pioneering these changes is 32-year-old Sean Brown, the founder and CEO of Irvine, California based venture capital and business consulting firm GO VC.

From the outside, GO VC may seem like a typical venture capital firm. Startups approach his company, some in the idea stage, and some with proof of concepts looking to scale. These companies reach out to the firm for help with raising capital to bring ideas to life, or scale concepts that are already working. GO VC helps prepare and make sure the idea is well vetted, helps launch the idea to market, and provides resources to assist with the management of the business.
