Groundbreaking portfolio

We have partnered closely with Europe’s best entrepreneurs, as they built companies that changed the way people live and work.

Experienced and equal partnership

Our equal partnership includes founders of multi-billion dollar businesses, operational leaders from leading tech companies, and investment experts with years of global experience. 

Substantial scale and support 

Balderton’s early stage and growth funds allow us to invest from Seed to IPO. And we provide hands-on support for founders and their teams, based on the deep functional expertise of our portfolio services team and EIRs. 

Deep European

We have been investing in Europe for more than 20 years, and know how to help European founders build global businesses. Our London office near King’s Cross is a startup hub. And with investors based in Paris and Berlin, we are never more than a short flight or train ride away. 

Powerful community 

The Balderton Community brings together more than 500 executives from across the portfolio, so our founders and their teams can tap into the collective wisdom of Europe’s tech leaders.

Founder wellbeing and performance 

We know what it takes to build and sustain high performing companies. That’s why we take a holistic approach to supporting our founders, with programs focused on health, fitness, nutrition, executive coaching, and peer-to-peer support.

“Balderton has been the kindest, most supportive, and smartest investor group I have had the honour to work with. I haven’t seen another group that has been so truly empathetic as Balderton. I felt like you guys were on my team through ups and down and I am very grateful for that.”
