VALUE.

 

non sibi ventures is an early-stage venture capital firm that invests in category defining U.S.-based technology startups led by underrepresented founders. We seek leading venture returns by applying value investing principles to our sourcing and selection process.

VALUE: the non sibi difference

Invest in overlooked, underrepresented founders

Target underserved markets, consumers or enterprises

Be highly disciplined in our approach

Diligence using extensive fundamental research and analysis

Back founders aligned with our "Values"

 

non sibi  [nɒn sib-bee] phrase Latin
(motto, creed or belief)
1. not for self. When your actions, motivation and mission
are for the benefit of others instead of for yourself.

FOUNDERS WE BACK

 

Two-thirds of our investments will be in diverse founders and 50% will be in women. We look beyond Silicon Valley & NYC - in other U.S. cities and regions with lower profiles.

As a team, we leverage our multi-dimensional, diverse perspectives and pattern recognition to find overlooked and less obvious investment opportunities. 


The right founders and team matter immensely. We insist on knowing teams well - as individuals and as leaders. We need the strongest evidence of integrity, hustle, leadership, humility, vision and the ability to execute.

DIVERSITY OUTPERFORMS

 

At the foundation of our investment strategy is the data driven fact that diversity outperforms.​ With that perspective, first and foremost non sibi ventures is returns driven. The fund will have a meaningful impact automatically because of this strategy and our intention. 

DEVELOPING LEADERSHIP EXCELLENCE

 

Post-funding we strive to increase value through leadership development. Our focus on leadership programming for our founders is expected to improve returns - as we invest differentially in the business acumen and the leadership capacity of our portfolio companies.

DOMAIN EXPERTISE

 

We look for the best investment opportunities regardless of technology and application but lean towards sectors and solutions where we have domain expertise including 65+ years of combined experience in mobility, sustainability, industry 4.0, and people optimization.
