Our team of professionals brings decades of experience in private equity, corporate finance, entrepreneurship and technology to identify the most attractive transformative trends across a number of sectors and invest into the companies with the strongest potential to benefit from these trends. We work closely with the management teams of our portfolio companies by driving forward strategic initiatives and operational improvements.

Our Mission Statement

At 1435 Capital, our mission is to instill trust with our partners and maximize capital returns through efficient and calculated entrepreneurial investments.

1435 Name Origin

1435 millimeters is the width of a standard gauge railroad track and 1435 Capital is located near the Princeton Junction train station. Trains, commerce, and capital move on rails. 1435 is referencing the fact that commerce and thereby capital moves efficiently and quickly through railroads, hence the origin of our name.

Our Focus

We focus on growth stage startups, largely those seeking funding from Seed through Series C. We are industry agnostic and generally focus on companies with teams with a strong track record, a clear path to revenue, and proprietary technology or a “moat”. We are also looking to invest in private late-stage Pre-IPO secondaries.

Our Approach

We provide advice, guidance, and mentorship while employing a disciplined framework to help our early stage portfolio companies reach their full potential.
