    Why it’s a great time for Silicon Valley tech talent to beat a path to Europe’s capital cities

    BALDERTON IS OPENING OUR DOORS TO SILICON VALLEY TALENT

    In September of 2018, we hosted a special event at Balderton’s HQ, where we invited people in our immediate circle of colleagues and business friends who had previously worked in technology in Silicon Valley (and also in other tech hubs of the US), and who now, for a variety of reasons, live and work in technology in Europe.

    Read about why we hosted this event, and why we think there is no better time for others to join this community of Silicon Valley talent in Europe.

    The research: European founders' Silicon Valley experience

    In mid 2018, Balderton engaged with Startup Heatmap Europe to survey the European technology founder startup community

    THE RESEARCH

    In addition to the questions that Startup Heatmap has been tracking with European founders for years (released in October 2018 — ‘The Rise of the Interconnected Startup’), we asked specific questions of these startup founders about their experience of the Valley, to uncover how many have made the journey to the Valley and back again to Europe, as well as to begin to gauge the impact the Valley has on their experience as European founders.

    Our goal with this research was to find out how many European founders were ex-Silicon Valley and gauge the impact of their experience.

    THE STORIES

    We interviewed some of the ex-Silicon Valley technology pioneers now making an impact in Europe to find out what bought them to Europe, and what they found when they got here.
