1859 Ventures

Built by Founders
For Founders

Our MissionContact Us


If you are a founder raising capital in the state of Oregon, you already know how challenging it is. 1859 Ventures is dedicated to building better founders by providing resources, mentorship, and funding to enable high growth. Through our network of investors and resources 1859 Ventures is helping to give founders a global competitive advantage. 


1859 Ventures is built for founders, by founders. We know how difficult it can be to build a business. It should not be made more difficult due to a lack of access to funding. We believe that by giving founders a chance, they can change the world. 

We are focused on Oregon founders who have felt left behind by the process which typically includes first time founders, women, people of color, and military veterans. If that’s you, let’s talk!
