Our Story

Venture 1 Consulting was established in London in 2000, and has been helping businesses deliver innovation and efficiencies through the use of fit-for-purpose technology solutions ever since.


We don’t believe in technology for technology’s sake – it has to deliver real business value. And our ever growing, loyal customer base sees us not just as competent technical experts but as strategic partners in helping them realise their IT strategies and business visions.

What We Do

Venture 1 Consulting helps businesses to scale quickly, improve agility, get more mobile and reduce the cost of IT ownership through the effective implementation of both cloud and on premise technologies.


We act as trusted partners to our customers, helping them to get more out of their existing IT as well as leveraging new technologies to achieve innovative advantage over their competitors.  We pride ourselves on our high levels of customer loyalty.

‘The professionalism and attention to detail from Venture 1 Consulting is fantastic. Their experience in technology is fantastic and very broad. They’re always very knowledgeable and helpful in terms of resolving our issues as quickly as possible, and they understand what’s important – that comes across whenever they deliver critical projects for us. There hasn’t been a time when we’ve been to Venture 1 with a project and they haven’t been able to assist’.
