The defining asset of every leading technology company is talent. At Balderton, our job is to provide capital to support European technology companies to attract and retain world leading talent and get the best out of them. As a result, we’re fortunate to have learnt a lot about what it takes to identify, attract and retain people from the teams we work with.
In this report, we’ve set out to identify where people working in European technology companies come from, what experience they have, and what they expect in their roles. We did this by profiling almost 15,000 employees in over 1,000 venture-backed companies in Europe, and by working closely with a select group of recently backed start-ups.
