DBL Investors

DBL Investors is a venture capital firm created from the spin-out of the Bay Area Equity Fund I from JPMorgan in January of 2008. Our “Double Bottom Line” investment strategy is to invest in companies that can deliver top-tier venture capital returns while working with our companies to enable social, environmental and economic improvement in the regions in which they operate. We accomplish this two-fold return by adhering to a strict investment discipline honed over 40 years of collective venture capital experience while at the same time implementing a proprietary approach to leveraging public sector, university and not-for-profit resources to the benefit of our fund’s portfolio companies and to regional environmental and economic development goals.

Our first fund, the Bay Area Equity Fund I, is successfully implementing this double bottom line investment model in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our second fund, the DBL Equity Fund – BAEF II has the same investing approach with an expanded geographic focus of the Western U.S. At the same time that our portfolio companies deliver tangible benefits to the community,
such as job creation in low-income neighborhoods and corporate community engagement, their businesses are global in scope and many are international leaders in their fields. Our funds make investments in private growth companies with a strong emphasis on investments in Clean Tech as well as investments in Health Care, Information Technology, and Sustainability-Oriented Products and Services.
