Balderton Capital is the leading venture investor in the EU. Balderton has a track record of helping entrepreneurs build substantial businesses – with more $250m+ exits in the past five years than any other European venture firm.
They have backed over 100 entrepreneurs in the last decade, and continue to look for outstanding entrepreneurs who share our passion for disrupting large markets and building long-lasting, great companies.
They invest early stage, but, with nearly $2 billion of committed capital, we have the resources to support companies for the long term.
Their partners have founded and grown companies from one to thousands of employees; and they bring that real-world company-building experience, as well as their extensive network of relationships across multiple industries and continents, to the entrepreneurs they partner with.
Balderton was founded in 2000 by Benchmark Capital, the leading US venture firm. In 2007 Balderton formally became independent, although they maintain close ties with their Silicon Valley sibling.
