Will Prendergast, accomplice, Frontline Ventures

What tendencies are you most enthusiastic about investing in, typically?
We take an opportunistic strategy to investing at Frontline and are open to any variety of completely different tendencies throughout the B2B area. Typically, we’re excited to again founders engaged on:

  • Complexity within the software program/product improvement stack: As extra and extra companies develop into software program companies and software program merchandise develop into extra complicated there can be a layer of instruments that summary away that complexity and present connections between them. Software program utilizing different software program can be an thrilling area within the decade to come back, facilitated by many API-first firms.
  • Embedded finance: We’re excited by fintechs which are serving to non-financial establishments leverage their buyer base to offer monetary merchandise. Open banking is a gigantic enabler of embedded finance.

Since 2008, massive banks have develop into much less prepared to transact with regional retail banks. They have been unfairly deemed “too dangerous” of their portfolio. This firm goals to create a basic shift within the trade — from old skool field ticking compliance to data-driven methods of figuring out the danger. We’re very excited to extend equity and transparency between banks, which can inevitably create extra worth to the tip client.

Are there startups that you just want you’d see within the trade however don’t? What are some ignored alternatives proper now?
B2B funds are present process a renaissance for the time being with firms like Invoice.com dominating within the public markets. As fintech creeps into extra elements of the product stack, funds is simply the primary half to provide enormous winners. Fixing the nuts and bolts of enterprise finance continues to be a vastly ignored alternative for each massive and small firms.
We’d additionally like to see extra firms devoted to decreasing the CFO burden at SME and enterprise stage. From real-time payroll to treasury and worker pension administration, a lot of a CFO’s work is guide and time consuming.
We have now supported firms that make a major dent within the particular components of the funnel (for instance, Payslip — a world payroll automation platform), however we really feel like there’s extra room for end-to-end automation on this realm.

What are you in search of in your subsequent funding, on the whole?
We’re in search of challengers who search out different robust minds; whether or not you’re a first-time founder constructing one thing that issues, or a seasoned entrepreneur that is aware of how exhausting it’s to “make it.” In all of our investments, we prize self-awareness above all else in our founders; key to constructing nice groups and scaling a world enterprise. Ambition doesn’t require expertise. We’re seeking to spend money on pioneers throughout Europe from the world of tech, laptop science and engineering, attributable to our personal deep data of know-how. In return, we use our private expertise in constructing and scaling enterprise throughout each side of the Atlantic to assist founders get off the bottom — and go international.

Which areas are both oversaturated or could be too exhausting to compete in at this level for a brand new startup? What different forms of merchandise/providers are you cautious or involved about?
Merchandise which are being constructed particularly with the situations created by COVID-19 right now could discover themselves in a wildly completely different setting in 18 months. We’re seeking to communicate to founders who see how issues at the moment are and have a robust opinion on how they’re going to have an effect on issues within the years to come back.

How a lot are you centered on investing in your native ecosystem versus different startup hubs (or in all places) on the whole? Greater than 50%? Much less?
We assist founders with international ambition throughout each side of the Atlantic. Frontline Seed is a pan-European early-stage fund investing all throughout Europe. Frontline X is a growth-stage fund, for quick and frictionless U.S.-Europe growth.
After we first began Frontline, the overwhelming majority of our investments got here out of Eire. Since 2012 we now have expanded our scope, and for the previous few years have been very a lot pan-European and now make investments throughout Eire, the U.Okay., Germany, the Netherlands and Southern Europe.

Which industries in your metropolis and area appear well-positioned to thrive, or not, long run? What are firms you might be enthusiastic about (your portfolio or not), which founders?
U.S. tech firms like Amazon, Fb, Google, Zendesk Hubspot (amongst many others) have a “pied-à-terre” in Eire.
Normally, top-class engineering expertise is sourced extra cheaply there than within the U.S., making a self-fulfilling prophecy. They upskill nice engineers, who then go on to create nice firms.
We’ve seen startup developer instruments thrive in Eire because of this; an instance of which is Tines.io. This Accel-and-Index-backed firm was constructed by the world-renowned safety workforce in Dublin.

How ought to investors in different cities take into consideration the general funding local weather and alternatives in your metropolis?
Eire is a hidden gem — we’ve had the privilege of reaping the rewards. Nevertheless, I think that the likes of Tines.io, Intercom and Stripe are stirring investor curiosity.
We’re already seeing top-tier U.S. VCs like Sequoia putting bets in Irish firms at a pre-seed stage, for instance Evervault, one in every of our portfolio firms.

Do you anticipate to see a surge in additional founders coming from geographies outdoors main cities within the years to come back, with startup hubs dropping folks because of the pandemic and lingering considerations, plus the attraction of distant work?
As a world fund, a part of our core perception is that nice firms and distinctive founders can come from anyplace on this planet. COVID-19 has had a major and eroding impact on conventional “tech hub” fashions and we now have seen founders of all walks of life understand that firms can’t solely run, however thrive in a distant world.
That mentioned, we additionally consider that geography will proceed to matter. The place you arrange your HQ in Europe as a growth-stage B2B SaaS enterprise increasing from the U.S. (for instance) will proceed to matter in a post-COVID world — as a result of authorized entities will proceed to matter.

Which trade segments that you just spend money on look weaker or extra uncovered to potential shifts in client and enterprise habits due to COVID-19? What are the alternatives startups could possibly faucet into throughout these unprecedented occasions?

  1. The closure of retail shops = large development in e-commerce. Corporations large and small are vamping up their again and entrance ends, and trying to get extra visibility on their provide chain for higher customer support.
  2. Funds transition on-line = extra monetary crime. Banks want instruments that assist them detect fraud.
  3. Customers are tight on money = HR departments need to present extra wage liquidity and assist workers save for his or her pensions to create higher monetary wellness.

These are simply to call a couple of.

How has COVID-19 impacted your funding technique? What are the most important worries of the founders in your portfolio? What’s your recommendation to startups in your portfolio proper now?
COVID-19 has not modified our funding technique however it’s going to have lasting affect on the best way companies are run and constructed. That mentioned, the pandemic has given us a brand new filter: “How profitable can this product/enterprise mannequin be in a post-COVID world?”
In the mean time, our founders are most frightened by engagement (sustaining firm tradition) and expertise (workforce growth, senior management recruitment).
Each firm is completely different and we draw back from blanket statements, however what we do advise is that founders spend time to determine what working format works greatest for his or her firm and that they pay attention rigorously to their workers. How will you proceed to develop your corporation, while sustaining and nurturing an inclusive and engaged firm tradition?
Additionally — when you can, shore up your stability sheet. Imagine it or not, VC funding was at an all-time excessive in Europe final quarter. Go fundraise to increase your runway as a lot as attainable. Nobody actually is aware of what the following 12 months is basically going to carry.

Are you seeing “inexperienced shoots” concerning income development, retention or different momentum in your portfolio as they adapt to the pandemic?
Three firms in our portfolio stand out as pandemic inexperienced shoots:

  • Workvivo is designed to advertise workforce tradition and communication digitally. They’ve efficiently raised a Sequence A midpandemic with U.S. investor Tiger International to deal with demand from massive clients.
  • Qualio is one other portfolio firm promoting high quality administration software program into life sciences and pharmaceutical firms. They blew out their Q2 targets and raised an $11 million Sequence A.
  • Sign AI: Media monitoring is a lovely proposition to PR and comms groups in turbulent occasions. Sign AI has lately partnered with Deloitte to provide COVID-19 curated stories on how the pandemic has and is constant to have an effect on provide chains, enterprise, society and journey.

What’s a second that has given you hope within the final month or so? This may be skilled, private or a mixture of the 2.
Seeing how properly the various groups in our portfolio centered on worker well being, well-being and security and how exhausting they’ve all labored to maintain their firms going robust.
