We’re delighted that ECI have been shortlisted for two categories at the GP Bullhound 2021 Investor Allstars awards, or ‘The Oscars of the tech world’. Investor Allstars recognises and celebrates the successes and achievements within Europe’s technology universe, drawing attention to those who are shaping the industry’s future and creating the global winners of tomorrow.
ECI has been nominated as the Growth & Buyout Fund of the Year, following a strong period of investments including CIPHR, Mobysoft, CSL and the reinvestment in Avantia. The last year also saw many successful exits for ECI, including Arkessa, MPM, Edenhouse, Investis Digital and the partial exit of ATG which went public and is now a tech unicorn with a £1bn+ market valuation.
Paul McCreadie, Partner at ECI, has also been shortlisted as Investor of the Year, acknowledging the impact made by Paul both through new investments in CSL- ECI’s largest deal to date – and the strong realisations of Arkessa and Avantia, as well as the valuable support added as a Board Member for Clear Group and Tusker. Paul is also one of the most experienced private equity investors within both the insurance and IoT subsectors, and leads on these subsectors internally at ECI.
