Lighting Retrofit International Becomes 1st Investment for Arborview. 11/17/2009 Private Placement.
In an era when venture capital funds are disappearing both locally and nationally, it is worth noting that Arborview Capital of Chevy Chase made its first investment in November. Arborview is founded by Karl Khoury, previously with Columbia Capital before striking out on his own, and Joe Lipscomb, previously with Global Environment Fund and Carlyle. This is a “clean energy” fund and certainly stays true to that mission (and local) just out of the blocks. Once again, we are recommending a name change PR firm.
