Balderton has a track record of helping entrepreneurs build substantial businesses – with more $250m+ exits in the past five years than any other European venture firm.
We have backed over 100 entrepreneurs in the last decade, and continue to look for outstanding entrepreneurs who share our passion for disrupting large markets and building long-lasting, great companies.
We invest early stage, but, with nearly $2 billion of committed capital, we have the resources to support companies for the long term.
But we do more than just invest. Our partners have founded and grown companies from one to thousands of employees; and we bring that real-world company-building experience, as well as our extensive network of relationships across multiple industries and continents, to the entrepreneurs we partner with.
Balderton was founded in 2000 by Benchmark Capital, the leading US venture firm. In 2007 Balderton formally became independent, although we maintain close ties with our Silicon Valley sibling.
