Why Balderton?

Balderton was founded to support Europe’s most ambitious technology entrepreneurs. We invest in European-founded companies at both early and at growth stage, through Balderton Growth I.

We have been on the ground in Europe for more than 20 years, developing unrivalled local insight, and supporting companies at all stages of growth from early-stage to exit. We are part of the fabric of the European tech ecosystem with one of the deepest benches in Europe. We have more than twenty investors across the key hubs of London, Paris, Berlin and Stockholm.

Our equal Partnership

We are, uniquely, an ‘equal Partnership,’ which gives our companies full access to the combined insight, knowledge and experience of our entire Partnership team.

As operators, founders and investors in some of the biggest technology success stories in Europe, the US and Asia, we are committed to personally sharing our global network and our expertise with our Founders and CEOs on their journey from early stage to exit.

The Balderton
Collective

Balderton portfolio leaders join a community we call the Balderton Collective. This network connects portfolio teams to each other, to help them build deep, mutually supportive relationships. 

Our CEOs meet together in person at our biennial Balderton Collective CEO Retreat, and we facilitate a network of small group support through our Balderton CEO Forums.

We also draw on our unrivalled personal and professional network to connect the Collective with mentors, board members, partners, customers, experts and advisors across the globe.
