17Capital was the first private equity firm in the US & UK to sign the Epic Sharing Pledge and pledged to give 1% of the carried interest on its €1.2Bn Fund 4 to Epic.

17Capital hosts the London Epic team in our central London offices – another pragmatic way we leverage our assets to support social innovation at the heart of our work.


Epic introduced 17Capital to Haven House Children’s Hospice and commissioned Harry Luxton to create a one-off painting for their London office. Find out more here.
