Manish Madhvani, Managing Partner at GP Bullhound, commented: “It’s been incredible to see that the European tech industry continues to mature and innovate, reaching a cumulative value creation of $1tn. 2022 has seen the production of 125 new unicorns – as many in one year as the last three. Despite uncertainty in the global markets, GP Bullhound is proud to continue to invest in the bright entrepreneurs shaping the future of our industry. In 2022, we launched our €200m SPAC on Euronext Amsterdam, closed 27 deals, opened new offices in Luxembourg, Zurich and Malaga, and reached €1bn of assets under management. European tech has proved that it is agile to face a multitude of challenges and continues to stand as a highly worthy rival to the American and Asian markets. We are delighted to continue to support and highlight the entrepreneurs and investors who fuel the European ecosystem and shape the future of technology. Congratulations to all the well-deserving winners of the 2022 Investor Allstars Awards.”
