Could you be our next ESG intern?

When we founded AlbionVC in 1996 we set out to partner with visionary entrepreneurs to create successful companies across a range of industries.

A lot has changed since, however the way we do business has not. We are supportive investors, not operators, who strive for excellence and show ethics and humility in our interactions with founders and with each other.

Having become a UN PRI signatory in 2019, today AlbionVC champions responsible investment and ESG across its internal operations, investment process and portfolio stewardship. AlbionVC is a signatory of Investing in Women Code and is actively involved with VentureESG to promote sustainability practices across private markets and for early- stage technology companies.
