Every two years, we hold a gathering for the CEOs of Balderton's portfolio companies. We call this event The Collective. Over a two day period, we aim to achieve three things:
1) Give people a chance to have a physical and psychological break from their intense, day to day focus
2) Introduce external speakers who provide thoughtful provocation on what it means to be a leader, and on the nature of the legacy that our technology companies will leave the next generation.
3) Choose a setting and create an atmosphere that allows for the building of peer to peer relationships between our CEOs
In May of this year, the Collective was held at Soho Farmhouse in Oxfordshire. Our time together was predictably memorable, engaging and a lot of fun. The Balderton team would like to extend particular thanks to our four external speakers Carlota Perez, Nick Bostrom, Julian Treasure, and Ben Casnocha.
