DRD Capital is a team of experienced investors who have spent the past 20 years building and investing in some of the Internet’s leading sites.
DRD Capital focuses on investing in strong, defensible businesses in growing markets. We have been able to find businesses with these characteristics in a number of industries, including many Internet marketplaces. DRD Capital is a flexible source of capital and a value-added partner. We structure our private equity investments based on each company’s circumstance, often using the following deal structures:
- Partial buyouts (often partially cashing out the owners or founders)
- Full acquisition
- Final round financings that take the company to profitability
DRD Capital was founded in 2006 by Dennis DeAndre, an entrepreneur and active investor in private companies. He founded LoopNet (Nasdaq: LOOP) in 1995 and served as the company’s Chairman and CEO as it evolved into the Internet’s largest commercial real estate marketplace. LoopNet was acquired in 2012. Prior to starting DRD Capital, Dennis was also an owner of BizBuySell and BizQuest, the Internet’s two largest business-for-sale marketplaces. He is a graduate of the Haas School of Business at U.C. Berkeley.
