Through consistent and considered application of our investment thesis, 1839 Venture Funds invest in exceptional entrepreneurs and superior teams committed to dominating their given market space.
Our portfolio companies can typically defend their products or services through intellectual property protection. We may join other venture funds while investing but will typically be the lead investor or the first institutional investor in the companies we support.
Along with our investment thesis, 1839 Ventures™ further embraces a thematic approach and has adopted a platform strategy in order to help our portfolio companies achieve greater success.
Adhering to an investment thesis helps us maintain our focus and drives smart consistent investment decisions. This benefits both our investors and our portfolio companies.

Business owners think of venture capital in colorful ways, but approachable is not usually the first word that comes to mind. We would like to change that.
Although our funds may not be able to invest in every business, we may offer a suggestion, or create a useful connection.
We hold ourselves to the same standards as firms many times our size. That means we are registered, transparent, committed to reporting, and adhere to SEC standards.
Our venture team does not exist in an unreachable tower. We actively participate in the startup community, educating entrepreneurs, and strengthening the overall startup ecosystem.
