Investor Coffee Morning with Frontline VC

May 30, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm BST

THIS EVENT IS FOR TECHHUB MEMBERS ONLY

Join us for an informal chat over coffee and cake where we will be welcoming William McQuillan, Partner at Frontline VC.

Frontline is an early-stage B2B venture capital firm powered by people – the ambitious founders they invest in, their strong networks of industry experts, and their own passionate team of ex-operators.

Frontline is based in London and Dublin, but back companies throughout Europe. They bridge the technical and the human, providing both capital and experience to help shorten their founders’ learning curves. They strive to unlock the power of collective intelligence through their innovative platform.

Frontline has deep
connections to the US:

  • 50% of our portfolio has offices in the US
  • 55% of our portfolio has US investors
  • As a team, we spend 20% of our time in the US

Frontline invests time and money into building the relationships needed to fast-track your expansion into the US – from investors to recruiters to other founders. They’ve also built a wealth of knowledge and content around international expansion, so that we can help you reduce the friction.

William is a Partner at Frontline Ventures and was the youngest partner of a European VC fund when Frontline was founded.

After leaving university, William was one of the founding employees of Ondra Partners, a startup investment-banking boutique. Within 18 months, Ondra grew from a four-person team to 70+ employees across London, New York, and Paris and was named the top investment banking boutique globally by Euromoney.

William’s work at Ondra led him to discover his passion for rethinking an industry, and he shortly thereafter co-founded Osmoda, a fashion e-commerce company creating a new way for young and up-and-coming designers to sell online. During the same time, William was also the Global Ambassador for the Sandbox Network, a community of over 1000 innovators under 30.

It was through his work at Osmoda and Sandbox that William experienced firsthand the difficulty that European founders have when fundraising. This inspired him to join Will and Shay to set up Frontline, a fund that would usher in a new generation of early-stage venture capital in Europe.

William is also a keen adventure traveller, and when taking time off is as likely to be seen running a triple marathon across Northern Spain, hiking through Colombian rain forest, or white-water rafting down a Himalayan river. Except on Halloween, where you can find him in one of his ridiculous, homemade costumes.

NB. Investor Coffee Mornings are available to startup Founders & C – level only. For code please email perdie@techhub.com
