Steven Gui | Investment Analyst, The Dearfield Fund

Steven is an Investment Analyst at Gary Community Ventures, primarily serving The Dearfield Fund for Black Wealth. His role with Dearfield embodies a mission for sustainable economic empowerment within Black communities and the creation of generational wealth. This passion is fueled by his academic exploration of African American experiences, guided by the supervision of Dr. Komozi Woodard, a distinguished scholar in Black history and the author of the book “A Nation Within a Nation”.

Originally from Shenzhen, China, and now settled in Denver after an academic and professional journey through the East Coast, Steven’s consulting work has fostered entrepreneurial funding and enriched international dialogues. Notably, he contributed to the organization of a blockchain conference in China, where he also moderated a high-level panel with leaders from various industries. In his previous role as an Investment Banking Analyst, Steven provided underwriting support for capital raising as well as mergers and acquisitions. Additionally, he was involved with high-profile pre-IPO projects with firms like Airbnb and Palantir Technologies, while also contributing to a market research site, leveraging a keen interest in macro outlooks and investment strategies.

His volunteer spirit resonates through his involvement with the Associates For Christian Conferences Teaching and Service, focusing on character leadership development for young military officers, and with the International Young Leaders Assembly, supporting youth across the globe alongside the United Nations and World Bank. His move to Denver marks a shift to localize his community service, as he now actively volunteers with Metro Caring and A Little Help. Steve is a soccer aficionado and a Formula 1 fan who also cherishes shooting, volleyball, and photography.

I would like to see business people try to solve social problems with the same imagination and energy they use to finance a factory or make a deal. Don’t call it philanthropy; call it corporate social investment. Make it integral to business.
