    Description:

    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. DBL's 'Double Bottom Line' investment strategy is to invest in companies that can deliver top-tier venture capital returns while working with its companies to enable social, environmental and economic improvement in the regions in which they operate. The firm's first fund, the Bay Area Equity Fund I, implemented this double bottom line investment model in the San Francisco Bay Area. DBL's 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 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. DBL 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.
