Long-time partner Daniel Waterhouse has left Wellington Partners to join Balderton Capital as a General Partner, where he’ll be based in London focussing on early stage investments in the software and internet sectors. During his time at Wellington, Waterhouse is said to have led 11 investments in total, those including well-known startups such as Hailo, YPlan, SumAll, EyeEm and Qype (sold to Yelp), so on the surface this looks like a potential coup for Balder (IT news)
