Why we’re #MovingForward

MAR 08, 2019

This International Women’s Day, we would like to share that we will be a founding participant in #MovingForward’s European launch.

#MovingForward is an open-source directory for up-to-date information on diversity, inclusion, and anti-harassment efforts in Venture Capital, making it easier for founders to review policies, find supportive investors, and identify reporting contacts.

We believe that openness and transparency are critical to ensuring the Venture Capital industry operates with integrity, and so welcome the opportunity to support #MovingForward by publishing our Code of Conduct and reporting contacts on their platform.

At Balderton, we believe ethics are at the core of every great company. Respect, equality, and ethical conduct are three overarching principles that guide us as a firm and as people, and which all Balderton employees and partners aspire to and abide by when confirming they will adhere to this Code.

Ethical decision-making is not just the right thing to do, it is the best thing to do.

Practised at all levels of a company we believe it engenders sustainable business practices, better financial outcomes, and stronger organisations.

We are committed to abiding by the highest ethical standards when interacting with entrepreneurs, investors, each other, and with our community at large. We also encourage the entrepreneurs we work with to understand the benefits of these principles and to adhere to the same standards in their own businesses.
