Ask a VC anything with William McQuillan2 min read
On this week’s episode of the SaaS Revolution Show, we take you back to the SaaStock18 stage for a special Ask Me Anything session with William McQuillan, Partner at Frontline. Without any preselected questions, William answers everything on the spot at the Traction stage.
After leaving university, William was one of the founding employees of Ondra Partners, a startup investment-banking boutique. 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 all those places that William experienced firsthand the difficulty that European founders have when fundraising. This inspired him to join the other two partners, Will Prendergast, and Shay Garvey to set up Frontline, a fund that would usher in a new generation of early-stage venture capital in Europe. Frontline is based in London and Dublin but backs companies throughout Europe. Their portfolio includes companies such as Boxever, Roomex and AQMetrics among others.
In the AMA, Will answers a host of questions such as: Does he invest in failed entrepreneurs, advice for “unsexy” companies with a slow start, what is the first company Frontline invested in and where are they now as a result and many others.
Having hundreds of investors around such as William is one of the best features of SaaStock. With targeted matchmaking, a dedicated investor zone and plenty of serendipitous opportunities, you will be sure to have many chances to speak with potential future funders. We just ran a list of 20 investors that will be joining us so be sure to check it out and start prepping. We will link to it in the show notes. Grab a ticket at the best possible price now.
