Hedosophia European Growth is sponsored by Hedosophia, a global investor in leading technology companies led by co-founder and current Chief Executive Officer Ian Osborne. Hedosophia unites technologists, entrepreneurs and investors around a shared vision of identifying and supporting the most ambitious founders and technology companies. Since its formation in 2012, Hedosophia has developed a strong network within the European technology ecosystem, forging long-term relationships with founders and executives of category defining private and public companies, venture capitalists and growth equity investors.

Hedosophia is fundamentally convinced by the attractiveness of the European technology ecosystem but believes that European technology companies are lacking a viable alternative path to the traditional IPO. Hedosophia European Growth’s mission is to provide disruptive technology businesses with a more transparent and efficient mechanism to becoming public, unlocking the ecosystem’s full potential. Hedosophia European Growth intends to take the strengths of the U.S. model and adapt them to fit the European market.
