About DGI


Approach

We support entrepreneurs in their pursuit to build great companies. Our practice involves combining early to mid-stage growth capital with our expertise and mentorship. We assist portfolio companies with high level strategic business planning, while also connecting them with our network of regional sources of support and funding.

DGI's primary investment focus targets the industrial realm and ranges from manufactured products to renewable energies. More specifically, we enjoy products that involve some degree of engineering and that offer solutions to industries that encourage efficiency.

We collaborate with angel funding groups, institutions and Venture Capital firms in our network to bring additional and later stage funding to our portfolio companies.

History

The DeSimone family has been in business in Southern New Jersey for over 40 years. Michael's father, Tony DeSimone, became the owner of a Cadillac dealership on a small corner lot in Camden. With a love for everything involving small business, Tony attributed his success to "hard work, luck, a good attitude, and timing." Under the guise of his fathers values, Mike DeSimone took over the auto dealerships in 1988, leading the business to become a widely successful landmark that would later be acquired by Holman Enterprises in 2007. By driving the success of his family's business from growth to exit, Michael DeSimone has gained a deep understanding of what it means to be an entrepreneur.

Values

In his desire to support entrepreneurship in the region, Michael formed DeSimone Group Investments - a vehicle to propel fellow entrepreneurs and innovators that perpetuate his family's values. DGI seeks to support companies for which we find our team's collective experience to be uniquely relevant.
