Read Time: 1 Min

In recognition of a fantastic year of investments and exits at ECI, we have been shortlisted for Growth & Buyout Fund of the Year at the GP Bullhound 2022 Investor Allstars awards, or ‘The Oscars of the tech world’.

Investor Allstars celebrates and shines a light on the entrepreneurs and investors that are driving innovation and growth of the European tech ecosystem, and this year celebrates its 20th anniversary.

The last 12 months saw ECI invest £300m, with investments including BCN, Avantia and Zenergi. In the judging period ECI also completed 8 exits, generating an average return of 3.7x and 63% IRR. This represents the calibre of the management teams that we back, and the hard work of the ECI team in supporting management teams to achieve their growth objectives. This consistency of excellent results was also demonstrated by the close of our ECI 9 fund in October 2021 which generated a 3x return.

Congratulations to all the investors and entrepreneurs shortlisted. Winners will be announced on the 6th October. See the full shortlist here.
