DSBE is a homeless corporation in East Palo Alto presently focused on developing leverageable intellectual properties and a few of its planned divisions.
DSBE† was incorporated on September 3rd, 2010 in Menlo Park, California as an intellectual property development and marketing and sales , absorbing two existing businesses which had been in operation by its founder in its incorporation. The bedroom suite where it was founded overlooked Kholsa Ventures as its architect's vision was constructed with loving care.
Its first services sale was to Mrs. Estrada of Menlo Commons on behalf of itsSauber Janitorial Services division to help her resurface and paint the wall and ceiling framing her living room . Its first product sale was to the Su Fu (Abbottess) of the Pao Hua Buddhist Temple for the divider tabs in the binder she organizes the temple's affairs in. Both clients were gifted shares of stock by the corporation's founder in appreciation of their faith and support, as was the Menlo Commons Homeowners Association.
The company is active in philanthropic efforts for the sustainable and thoughtful improvement of East Palo Alto as a city and vibrantly diverse community and pledges to remain so.
After DSBE creates DSBF*, a non-profit foundation projected to be incorporated within the next two years with a gift of stock in DSBE, it will not longer be directly concerned with philanthropy. It's bylaws will be ammended to assure representation on its board by DSBF's in perpetuity.
DSBF will continue with the philanthropic works in progress from DSBE's charter, and expand into contributions to the arts, along with works of intellectual and theological inquiry.

Currently, the primary focus of the corporation is to provide legal services within the City of East Palo Alto and to sell janitorial and maintenance services from the City into its surrounding ones. It is secondarily concerned with providing market intelligence to corporate and government clients on a pro bono and contracted basis.
The corporation's divisions must evolve into independant business units and cost centers within a set number of years or they will be shut down. Each division is organizationally latticed with DSBEs internal departments and its sibling divisions' counterparts. Each division is under the direction of a General Manager who is also a corporate Vice President.
DSBE itself is divided into departments headed by a Director which are not expected to be autonomously profitable. These departments include Bookkeeping, Finance, Intellectual Property, Legal, Philanthropy, and Public Relations.
The Finance Department is intent upon developing the fundraising skills to secure grants and venture capital investments to launch and support skilled labor businesses within the city of East Palo Alto predicated upon the processes developed by DSBE's Intellectual Property department, and to be resold publically via its Multimedia Content division.
The Intellectual Property department of DSBE is concerned with multimedia content production and the development of light-industrial processes for sustainable agriculture, aquaculture, building materials, energy, and waste management.
DSBE aspires to realize applications of its intellectual efforts and organize those of others both domestically and for export to target set of ascending nations. These currently include Ethiopia, Malawi, Namibia, South Sudan, and Viet Nam. No expansion into those countries is foreseen for the next five years or more, by which time it is hoped Malawi and South Sudan will be sufficiently stable and infrastructurally developed for market penetration. Ethiopia, Namibia, and Viet Nam are soundly established.
The Legal department is solely concerned with DSBE's legal affairs and is not to be confused with DSBE's Legal Services division, which is a referring agency, value-added services reseller, and direct services sales organization.
