In 2014, 1776 Ventures was born out of the 1776 incubator based in Washington, DC. 1776 Ventures democratizes seed funding for entrepreneurs around the globe solving important problems in complex markets. 1776 Ventures embodies the best spirit of Washington, DC, with our belief in cultivating private and public partnerships and helping startups navigate massive markets intertwined with government.
