ABOUT US

non sibi ventures is a Seed and Series A venture capital fund investing primarily in startups led by underrepresented founders offering technologies that have a positive impact on citizens, communities, culture or the environment.

Our investment focus is in areas where we have expertise: mobility, climate, industry 4.0 and education - seeking truly impactful, differentiated and scalable solutions.

STRATEGY

The data driven fact that diversity outperforms is at the foundation of our investment strategy.

non sibi ventures is returns driven - first and foremost. Concurrently, the fund will have a meaningful impact automatically because of our strategy and passion.

We leverage our multi-dimensional, diverse perspectives and pattern recognition to find overlooked and less obvious investment opportunities. 

 

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.

Our diligence and portfolio selection leverages our decades of domain expertise and research-driven, fundamental investing principles and processes.

We take a value investing approach to venture - attracted to undervalued founders; or solutions targeting underserved consumers, enterprises or markets. Our discipline improves returns.

Our focus on leadership programming for our founders should improve returns - as we invest differentially in the business acumen and the leadership capacity of our portfolio companies.

“We believe outperforming requires identifying new areas of opportunity, while being able to anticipate risks that might arise as global demographics shift. Investment professionals with diverse perspectives will have a competitive advantage on both of these fronts.” 

 – Carnegie Corporation
