About this event

Do you want to know what kind of products, problems, industries and founders Dovetail are looking to invest in? 

This month we are hosting (in his own Auckland office) Nick Frandsen who is Managing Partner at Dovetail Studios, a full-service digital agency that specialises in helping clients build innovative customer-facing products at scale and also inbest in early-stage startups! One of their key success stories is the work they have done for AU tech giant Afterpay, helping them grow to an ASX listed company valued at $25B – with over 10m customers.

“People can think of us as the technical co-founder, responsible for driving and executing product strategy, design and the development of scalable products,” Dovetail co-founder Nick Frandsen

Dovetail’s operating model combines that of a services company with an early-stage startup incubator – reinvesting capital from the services business into funding and growing our own portfolio of technology companies. Internal capital is further combined with outside capital from VCs and corporate investors such as Blackbird Ventures and Qantas to seed high-growth companies. 

We are going to chat with Nick about his journey from founding an online ticketing platform (1-night.co.nz) to a full scale product agency and portfolio investment firm and their big goals for the future!
