This webinar was presented by William McQuillan. Corporate governance is a critical component in running any successful company. But what does it look like for a startup that is just getting off the ground? How can effective board composition help a startup strategically in terms of planning, value-addition, and future investment. This webinar will focus on an investor perspective on governance in investor led companies and how this evolves as organisations scale. It will also shed light on the role and responsibilities of board observers; and how often times it is better to be an observer than a board member.
William McQuillan is a founding partner at Frontline Ventures where he leads the London based team. Frontline is the early stage venture capital firm for globally ambitious B2B companies on both sides of the Atlantic. William’s career in investment spans from being one of founding employees of Ondra Partners (Euromoney’s Top Investment Banking Boutique for 2012) to being a Global Ambassador and Board Member of the Sandbox Network (a 1,500 person community representing many of the world’s greatest innovators under 30). His passion for making VC better for entrepreneurs made him set up Frontline with his partners. He currently sits on the board of over seven companies and also partakes as Board Observer in two.
