Balderton recruits Elodie Broad to be first head of impact

The VC and growth firm has established 10 sustainability goals, inspired by the UN SDGs, and in December published its first annual report on its progress against these.

Balderton Capital, the European venture and growth capital firm, has hired its first head of impact, Elodie Broad, as it looks to work on its “Sustainable Future Goals.”

Broad joins from Deloitte, where she spent six years, latterly as a senior manager specializing in “ESG strategy and regulatory readiness for the investment management and private equity sectors”, according to her LinkedIn profile.

Balderton has established 10 sustainability goals, inspired by the UN SDGs, and in December published its first annual report on its progress against them. The firm says it aims to progress these objectives through three channels: its investment decision-making, its own operations, and the operations of its portfolio companies.

London-based Balderton has nearly $2 billion in assets under management, and closed on $1.28 billion of capital in 2021 across its eighth venture fund and its debut growth capital fund, according to PEI Media’s databases.
