We took on a vir­tu­al­ly impos­si­ble task: We com­piled a list of the most pow­er­ful busi­ness peo­ple in the Bay Area. You should know these leaders.

Nan­cy Pfund
Founder and man­ag­ing partner
DBL Partners

Long rec­og­nized as a female pio­neer in the invest­ment realm, Nan­cy Pfund is the founder and man­ag­ing part­ner of San Fran­cis­co-based DBL Part­ners. She’s been an ear­ly investor in Tes­la Motors, SpaceX, SolarCi­ty and Pan­do­ra. She’s an out­spo­ken advo­cate for “impact invest­ing,” using invest­ment to spur social change. Last year Pfund was named the 2022 Finan­cial Woman of the Year by the Finan­cial Women of San Fran­cis­co, adding to a host of plau­dits for her work in impact invest­ment on behalf of the envi­ron­ment; not many peo­ple can claim to have been hon­ored by Forbes and For­tune mag­a­zines on one hand and the Earth Day Net­work on the oth­er. Before DBL, she was man­ag­ing direc­tor in ven­ture cap­i­tal for JPMor­gan and pre­vi­ous­ly worked for Intel, the state of Cal­i­for­nia and Stan­ford University.
