DCA’s Approach to ESG Investment
Increasing awareness of the importance of sustainability and societal issues among investors is a key driver in the growing ESG investment space. The traditional notion that seeking financial gain lies diametrically opposed to the desire to do good is no longer valid. As we face major societal and environmental challenges today and over the coming decades, we must seek fundamental changes in how we conduct ourselves as consumers and investors. This has the potential to give mission-driven organizations with strong ESG practices a distinctive leg up on their competition…and do a lot of good in the process. DCA believes that the ESG vertical can continue to deliver positive results, and has already invested in several aspects of ESG. DCA looks for companies that are creating game changing technologies and platforms that create real profit and a favorable societal impact.
DCA's Crossover Strategy
Crossover investing is a key trend across the capital markets and an important component to DCA’s approach to AI investment. Put simply, a venture capital crossover fund is one that invests in both private and publicly traded companies, such as funds that hold onto some or all of their portfolio companies after they go public. DCA fully expects crossover investing to be a long-term trend that will play a prominent role in shaping the future of venture capital for a variety of reasons.
