David has been active for twenty-five years in the formation of new businesses through entrepreneurial acquisition. After graduating from the GSB, under the direction of Professor Irv Grousbeck, he wrote the original course material for search funds—then in its infancy. After one year as a case writer, David Dodson raised his own search fund, which led to the purchase of Smith Alarm Systems in 1989. He subsequently raised two more search funds to purchase an auto parts retailer and an environmental services firm. During this time, Mr. Dodson became an active investor in, and board member of, other search funds, having invested in over forty. Mr. Dodson has been a director and investor in twenty-one middle market companies.
David Dodson currently divides his time between Stanford University and Project Healthy Children (a nonprofit enterprise with operations in Rwanda, Burundi, Nepal, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Zimbabwe and Malawi), and a "double bottom line" enterprise called Sanku, LLC, with operations in east Africa. He is also completing his first novel.
