Dev Equity aims to help improve the lives of people living in low-income countries by investing in private companies that can make a positive social and environmental impact. By providing long-term capital and direct support, Dev Equity helps innovative companies in select Latin American countries expand their growth, profitability and impact.

Elizabeth Funk serves proudly as the Senior General Partner for Dev Equity, though the real engines behind Dev Equity’s enormous early success are Forrest Metz, Carl Reinhardt, Justin Otero and others.  Dev Equity is proud to have received funding from OPIC, the Overseas Private Investment Corporation of the United States government. Dev Equity has completed investing its first fund and is in the early stages of raising Dev Equity II.
