Balderton strengthens its presence in France with two additional team members

We are pleased to welcome new joiner Elena Moneta to the Balderton team, expanding our footprint in France as Solene Brebant makes the move across the channel.

Solene, who joined Balderton in London in 2022, will join Zoe Mohl on the early-stage team in Paris. Elena is joining Balderton’s growth team as a Principal. Elena joins us from Partech, and is focused on investment areas including SaaS and digital health.

Balderton has been actively investing in France for over twenty years, counting the likes of Aircall, Vestiaire, GitGuardian, Sweep, PlayPlay, Payflows and PhotoRoom among the portfolio. With our expanded team, we look forward to continuing to support the next generation of French founders.

I’m excited to be moving across the channel to double down on Balderton’s investment efforts in France. Paris is home to some of Europe’s leading tech companies – including existing portfolio companies such as Aircall, PhotoRoom and Payflows – and I’m looking forward to working with the next generation to French founders to build world-changing businesses

Solene Brebant Associate, Balderton

Balderton has partnered with some of the brightest minds in tech over the past 24 years. The firm’s rigorous investment approach and holistic support for founders were key factors in my decision to join the team. With a specific focus on backing growth stage SaaS and healthtech companies in France and across Europe, I am truly excited to be supporting the next generation of disruptors
