What we invest in

We invest in founders who have vision. The vision to shake up their industry and disrupt the status quo. We invest in products, we invest in services and we invest in ideas.  We invest in innovation and we invest early.

With each investment we commit more than just capital. We invest time. We provide financial backing, guidance, mentoring, networking opportunities, and general support to ensure each portfolio company meets its full potential. Together, we form a partnership.

We invite you to be a part of this partnership.

 

What we look for

The best horse will never win the Derby with a poor jockey, just as the best ideas won’t succeed without the right founders behind them.

We look for founders with the drive, ambition and tenacity to navigate the course and go the distance with an idea that has significant growth potential.

We invest in what we know and understand. Typically, this will be FinTech, Insurtech, Payments and Technology. These are the areas we can add value.

If we can’t articulate the idea, it’s not for us.

The whole team are motivated by a combined passion to perform and we are focused on gaining the best outcomes for investors.

 

How we invest

We operate a deal by deal investment strategy.

We match private investors with companies seeking capital. Investors join 1818 Venture Capital to pool their capital into the investment opportunity of their choice.

The Directors of 1818 Venture Capital co-invest their own money, on identical terms to investors, in every investment that they offer, aligning their interests with investors.
