Matt Upton features in Real Deals ‘Future 40 2019’

We’re delighted to announce that Matt Upton has been recognised in the Real Deals ‘Future 40 2019’ as one of the most influential dealmakers shaping the agenda for the future of European private equity.


Congratulations to Matt Upton who has been acknowledged in this year’s Real Deals ‘Future 40,’ following his role in our recent investment in digital marketing agency, Brainlabs. We invested in Brainlabs in March 2019 in order to support the company’s growth strategy and build a pipeline of merger targets with SEO, content and production expertise.

Matt joined Livingbridge over seven years, and supports management teams and owner managers in generating value from their businesses.

The ‘Future 40 2019’ acknowledges top emerging European private equity dealmakers. 2019 marks the first ever year that a judging panel has selected dealmakers for the ‘Future 40,’ and was partnered with Drax’s proprietary data analytics platform, drxDATA. The selection panel formed a view on deals done in 2019 that showed the most potential to perform well come exit in five years’ time.
