It all started when…
The company started as Zipfy Inc. with the launch of the Zipfy Freestyle Mini Luge in 2006, soon to become a global success in the winter sports category. A few years later, the company expanded its offerings into children’s toys and outdoor sporting goods, with a new overarching company moniker Great Circle Works.
Today, in addition to managing its core brands, the company is incubating and developing disruptive and compelling product brands in a wide variety of industries. We currently manage and invest in businesses under the updated name GCW Ventures.
The GCW Mission:
Create compelling, high quality brands that promote a healthy lifestyle
Collaborate with inventors and designers to build long lasting product businesses with attention to design
Support other businesses and help build other great brands through our global distribution
Contribute to growing innovation in product design and engineering
GCW Ventures focuses on building businesses that get people outdoors, being healthy and feeling young - this is what matters to us. Whether they are racing down a mountain on Zipfy snow sled, enjoying nature and relaxing in a Chillax travel hammock, or having a picnic in the park with a Pizzotto, our products invigorate people to be healthy and active.
