    Description:

    Established in 2011, DC Community Ventures is a community development venture capital firm with a dual focus of investing in companies in the Greater Washington, DC area that create jobs for low to moderate income employees or provide goods and services to under-served communities, and delivering favorable returns for its investors. DCCV targets investments in the Mid-Atlantic area, particularly in under-invested areas and industry sectors where inefficient capital allocation yields favorable valuations and investment returns. The Fund typically makes investments of between $100,000 and $750,000 and focuses mostly on mid-to-late stage investments, specifically in companies that are currently generating profits or have significant profit potential.
