We optimize for outlier talent, rather than specific technology types or sectors. As a result, EF’s portfolio reflects the technologies and global-scale problems that are most exciting to the top minds building at the cutting edge of their respective fields.
This approach has seen us backing innovators in AI since 2014, across computer vision, machine learning and natural language processing. Europe’s first computer vision unicorn was founded on our program in 2015, as was Sonantic, the text-to-speech AI voice platform founded in 2018, and acquired in 2022 by Spotify.
This diverse community of founders is supported by an extensive global network of advisors and investors. We’re proud that many of our founders have gone on to invest in EF and newer portfolio companies themselves.
