What our Founders are saying

Hear from some of our amazing portfolio companies below

"1818 Venture Capital has been a pleasure to deal with - they're approachable, move quickly (one of the reasons why we decided to go with them as our lead investor), offer fair terms, and have been a supportive investor since. 1818 provide a good balance between healthy questioning and challenge and giving the founding team autonomy and support to run the business. Definitely recommend them."

Tatseng Chiam
Co-Founder and COO, RideTandem

"1818 Venture Capital are honestly one of the best VCs I have ever come across. They are friendly, reasonable and honest people who really care about the Founder. They are supportive in the ways you need them to be and are always looking out for connections they can make that might help your business. They are kind, collaborative and take a different approach to pitching Founders which I found to be far more inclusive than any other VC I've met."

Chantal Epp
Founder and CEO, Clicknclear

"Quite simply without Richard, there would be no Pie Funds. He was business partner, mentor, director, support and everything else you would want from a VC investor. He believed in my vision and gave me the confidence to follow my dream. On top of this he’s actually a really nice person who always keeps his word and will treat you fairly, which is definitely what you want when starting out."

Mike Taylor
Founder and CEO, Pie Funds

"It's been a beautiful partnership. Richard is more than just money to me, he's a close personal friend. I feel that I can share absolutely anything, and everything with Richard, it's a fantastic relationship. The whole 1818 team have been very supportive, and very championing of our business. They push us forward and really help us to grow. Getting investment into your business is tough, getting investors who ACTUALLY give more than money is even tougher."

Mark Costello
Founder and CEO, Taveo

"The 1818 team is not only utterly lovely, they are amazing cheerleaders and collaborators. We only work with people we like and we really like 1818."

Paul Archer
Founder and CEO, Duel

"Working with the team at 1818 has been great. They have been really supportive from the outset and have been helpful at making relevant introductions and connections from their network. They offer good counsel, but without pushing an agenda. It genuinely feels like they are by your side as a founder."

Stuart Lewis
Founder and CEO, Rest Less

"Hugely helpful, kind and a real support. I have been delighted to have their backing.​ I would recommend them."

Rachael Crook
Founder and CEO, Lifted

"1818 Venture Capital have supported Laka financially and commercially from our earliest days and the strong domain expertise of the team continues to prove invaluable."

Tobias Taupitz
Founder and CEO, Laka

"1818 Venture Capital were courteous, transparent and supportive in our fundraise. We're looking forward to working alongside them as we continue to grow and scale MOONHUB."

Dami Hastrup
Founder and CEO, MOONHUB

"If I'm ever looking for brutally honest feedback on VC's, I reach out to my founder networks (such as Landscape) and have 20 founders offering me feedback within minutes. It's the difference between accepting and rejecting investment offers for thousands of founders. I consistently sing the praises of 1818 Venture Capital for bringing so much value to my business."

Jamie Beaumont
Founder and CEO, Playter
