Nancy E. Pfund is Founder and Man­ag­ing Part­ner of DBLIn­vestors, a ven­ture cap­i­tal firm located in San Fran­cisco, whose goal is to com­bine top-​​​​tier finan­cial returns with mean­ing­ful social, eco­nomic and envi­ron­men­tal returns in the regions and sec­tors in which it invests. As a lead­ing player in the grow­ing field of “impact invest­ing”, DBL has helped to reveal the power of ven­ture cap­i­tal to pro­mote social change and envi­ron­men­tal improve­ment, and Ms. Pfund writes and speaks fre­quently on this topic.
