our culture

Team collaborating around affinity diagrams

Big challenges. Passionate people. Smart solutions. This is what you’ll find at 1848 Ventures. We’re not aiming for incremental improvement – we’re breaking new ground. And when we see opportunity, we have the freedom, resources, and culture to make it happen.

Everything we do is rooted in a purpose. Our clients love working with us because we’re radically collaborative. Our approach is not a one-size-fits-all. From ideation to application, we’re in this together. We work every day to build meaningful relationships with our colleagues, customers, and partners.

And above all, we’re passionate. About the work, the people, and the impact we can make every day.

From ideation to application, we’re in this together. We work every day to build meaningful relationships and support each other in reaching our full potential.

INNOVATIVE
“Let’s try it!” is a common phrase in our vocabulary. We think outside the box and love to experiment.

DIVERSE
We make room for any and all. Innovation comes from everywhere, and we look to other voices, backgrounds, and experiences to expand our way of thinking.

We are not...

TRADITIONAL
We don’t follow the norm. We lead through experimentation and bring an entrepreneurial lens to our work.

SILOED
We’re not exclusive in our point of view. We seek out different perspectives and look to partner in areas we’ve never explored before.

COMPLACENT
We push past our comfort zones. Failure is only a step in the process; we learn, share, and move forward together as a team.

SPECULATIVE
We base our work on knowledge and insight, not assumption.

CAUTIOUS
We face risk and challenge head-on and without hesitation. Change is welcome, growth is mandatory.
