The challenge

Technology startups have the potential to catalyse change and social impact by delivering products and services that meet people’s needs better. Their business models can allow them to scale rapidly and reach more people more effectively. It can be transformative in the right context, with the right intent, and with a business model aligned to impact.

However, the financing available to tech startups could do more to support or encourage them to focus on positive social impact.

Our approach

We believe that by working with market leading venture firms like Balderton Capital, we can help tilt the venture ecosystem towards impact and support impactful startups that improve people’s lives across the UK.

The Fund

Balderton Capital will invest in the UK and Europe’s best growth stage technology companies, many of which have the potential to deliver strong economic, social and/or environmental outcomes on a transformative scale.
