ABOUT BALDERTON'S
LIQUIDITY I FUND

In October 2018, Balderton launched Liquidity I. The first of it's kind, the $145m fund is dedicated to buying shares from existing shareholders in fast-growing European founded companies.

Below you can register for our quarterly newsletter, learn about why we launched Liquidity I, read press on the fund and see our publicly announced investments.

The fund makes it possible for early shareholders — including angels, seed funds, current and former founders and employees — to realise early returns, reinvest capital in the ecosystem, or reward talent.

For founders

Enables founders to focus on their ambitions without the distraction and pressure of short- or medium-term financial issues. 

For employees

Enables employees to get rewarded for early dedication to a startup while remaining committed through the long haul, and allows ex-early employees access money to start a company of their own.

For early investors

Permits early shareholders to release capital in a way that potentially enables the recycling of capital into new startups.
