About 1517 Fund

We're a venture capital firm backing dropouts, renegade students, and deep tech scientists.

We back dropouts working on hard problems & sci-fi scientists at the earliest stages of their companies.

1517 supports teams led by young founders with grant, pre-seed, and seed funding for technology startups. Our focus is on makers, hackers, and scientists interested in working outside tracked institutions because we believe that the path geared towards higher education is not for all. We motivate people to work on what they’re passionate about, to learn by doing, and to create new technologies.
