Follow the Fund

Investing with Green D has allowed us to easily add an asset class to our portfolio that was previously off limits. We appreciate the benefit of following the investments of well-known venture firms while gaining insight into Green D’s due diligence process and supporting the Dartmouth community.”

We invested in the Green D Fund because we were looking to diversify our portfolio and felt confident that Green D would allow access to quality investment opportunities. While we were initially attracted by the connection to Dartmouth, we ultimately chose the Green D Fund because of it’s varied investments, access to an extensive community of entrepreneurs, and impressive management team.

“As a member of one of the earliest classes of women at Dartmouth, I want to serve as a role model for younger Dartmouth alumnae. Just like more women belong at Dartmouth, more women belong in and can be venture investors. In addition, I believe investing in Green D Ventures helps to strengthen the entire Dartmouth community.”

Susan Funk D'81
