Resilience requires a balanced approach.
Resilience is rarely spoken about in venture capital circles; anything other than the growth mantra can be criticised as being insufficiently ambitious. We feel that this suits the interest of investors more than executives and founders, and a more balanced approach is required. Frog’s portfolio is focused, and as a result, we are much more aligned with business leaders and founders in assessing appropriate risk and return in a realistic way.
The Scale-up Methodology has three elements within resilience; Value, Funding and Sustainability. We see these as mutually supportive: funding and sustainability provide the platform for the confident pursuit of value creation.
