The 11th annual Investor AllStars, presented by GP Bullhound and Vitesse Media, celebrated a year of great investments, fantastic exits and entrepreneurship.

This year saw Shirin Dehgan of Arieso win Female Entrepreneur of the Year and Alexander Ljung of SoundCloud being crowned Male Entrepreneur of the Year; Pär-Jörgen Pärson of Northzone was voted Investor of the Year, and DFJ Esprit won VC Fund of the Year.

This year also saw the introduction of the AllStars Challenge, with Believe Digital, Fly Victor, Klarna, MedicAnimal, Rovio, Secret Escapes and Zoopla fighting it out to win the accolade of Europe’s Most Exciting Investor Backed Company of the Year. After an interactive voting session, the prize went to Zoopla.

The event was again attended by the leading investors and entrepreneurs in Europe, and we would like to thank our sponsors and the attendees, and of course our esteemed judges panel without whom the event would not have been the success it was.
