Shortlist announced for Investor Allstars 2021.

16 September 2021 - GP Bullhound has revealed the shortlist for the 2021 Investor Allstars Awards. Now in its 19th year, the event will recognise the entrepreneurs and investors that are powering the growth of European tech innovation.

The award ceremony will take place on 14 October at the Hilton Park Lane, London, gathering more than 500 entrepreneurs and investors to celebrate 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.

GP Bullhound Managing Partner, Manish Madhvani, comments: “This year we have had an unprecedented number of entries across all categories, resulting in the most competitive shortlist we have ever had, featuring some of the world’s most high profile and successful unicorns, funds and tech firms.

As seen in our recent report “Titans of Tech”, Europe’s tech scene is growing at an unprecedented rate and the value of European tech Unicorns has doubled in just a year, fueled by the pandemic. This shortlist demonstrates the immense energy that we are currently seeing in the sector, and we can’t wait to celebrate the Investor Allstars winners at the awards ceremony on 14 October, to shine a light on those driving innovation and growth.”

The 14 award categories include ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’, ‘Investor of the Year’, ‘Exit of the Year’, and ‘Young Entrepreneur of the Year’. For the ninth year running, the awards will feature Europe’s Allstar Company and Tech4Good, with twelve of Europe’s best-known technology companies pitching to a panel of high-profile investors.
