eCircle Award NominationWe’re delighted to announce that our investors TA Associates have been short-listed at the InvestorAllStars 2010 Awards for the ‘Deal Envy of the Year’ for their majority investment of over €60million in eCircle.

Now in its eighth year, Investor AllStars brings together the best of Europe’s venture capital community to celebrate great investments, lucrative exits and all-round professional excellence. The awards recognise the leading risk-takers and backers of high-growth businesses in what is undoubtedly one of the most important events in the venture capital industry.

We’re up against some strong competition including our last investors Wellington Partners. Other nominees for Deal Envy of the Year Award include:

  • Heliatek GmbH − RWE Innogy GmbH
  • Spotify Limited − Wellington Partners
  • Mimecast Ltd − Index Ventures
  • Jolicloud SAS − Mangrove Capital Partners & Atomico Investment Holdings Ltd

The winner of the ’Deal Envy of the Year Award’ last year was the $17 million series B funding deal in Playfish by Accel, Index Ventures. We’re hopeful that our nomination is strong, as the €60million investment has already proved beneficial in the expansion of eCircle.

So fingers crossed we’ll be bringing home an award at the end of the night!

Investor AllStars 2010, Thursday 23rd September 2010 at the Hilton, Park Lane, London.
