Inspiration 

The firm is named after Sir Ernest Shackleton, famed for the rescue of his entire crew after their ship became trapped in the Antarctic ice.  Shackleton demonstrated the most inspirational leadership possible.  This above all led the team to successful survival against impossible odds, with every one of his 28 men returning home. There is one overriding lesson from Shackleton’s rescue, involving an 800 mile voyage in a cramped boat across the Southern Ocean and an unequalled climb across South Georgia.  That lesson is: Never Give up.  Shackleton Ventures shares that spirit and we will support you on your path to success.
