The European Startup Show

I am delighted to have Rob Moffat, Partner at Balderton Capital on the show today. Rob has been a partner at Balderton since 2015. He focuses mainly on fintech and insurtech but he also has experience in games, marketplaces, and SaaS. We covered a lot in this discussion including - his views on the European startup landscape and where the opportunities lie, the future of NFTs, web3, gaming, and fintech trends. We also spoke about organizational design and how to think about that as you move from Series A to Series B.
