The John W. Altman Institute for Entrepreneurship has collaborated with 1809 Capital from inception as part of the Institute's continuing efforts to help catalyze Miami University's powerful network of founders and angel, venture capital, growth and private equity investors. The 1809 team has executed a compelling venture capital investment strategy while engaging the expansive Miami alumni network of entrepreneurs/founders, VCs, and executives. We look forward to growing the partnership as 1809 Capital continues to build a sustainable platform to support Miami's perennial Top 10 undergraduate entrepreneurship program.

1809 Capital has assembled a team with extensive venture capital and fund management experience.  They have proven the ability to execute a compelling investment access strategy leveraging the Miami alumni network.   It is fun and exciting to see the synergy of Miami alumni from the venture community,  founders, and Limited partners.  As an LP I have been provided the opportunity expand my network and access to industry thought leaders, including engaging the 1809 Capital Network for the benefit of my advisory clients.   I have enjoyed reconnecting with alumni and Miami faculty – both virtually and on campus.   Join us, Love and Honor
