We were told it was impossible to build companies from scratch, and over the past five years we have built a robust and scalable way to do this. Our method works and has created some of the most valuable companies coming out of Europe and Asia. EF has now created and invested in more than 100 companies, which are now worth >$500m, having raised >$100m in venture capital. Magic Pony Technology was created through the EF process and exited to Twitter in 2016 for a reported $150m, just 18 months after it was founded.
We are very ambitious for the future of EF and we believe that we have a unique opportunity to understand and develop the secret to building billion dollar companies from scratch. No other investor or company has access to this opportunity.
