I’m excited to share the news that Eniac led a $3.1 million seed funding round in Attention last year, which was announced today in TechCrunch.

We love working with repeat founders — and in this case, Attention’s Anis Bennaceur (CEO) and Matthias Wickenburg (CTO) actually used to compete against each other at their respective startups Mixer and Swipecast.

Looking back at Eniac’s 2022

December 15, 2022

This has been a year of uncertainty, inside and outside the venture industry, but Eniac was as busy as ever.

For one thing, we made some exciting additions to the team, with Rifki Zable joining as our Vice President of Finance, and Monica Lim joining as an investor. Both of them have already made Eniac better in countless ways — and we were thrilled to get to know them outside of Zoom, since the Eniac team is back in-person in our New York HQ. We even hosted a few events!

As a seed investor, I’m always thinking about how to find the next unicorn before they’ve even built a product. Recently, I’ve realized that I’m looking for a new category of founder, which I’ll describe as “low code, higher go-to-market” — founders who may not have exceptionally strong technical chops, but make up for it with their strength in areas like sales, storytelling, and fundraising, as well as deep knowledge and connections in specific industry verticals.

Of course, it’s always been valuable to have someone with those skills leading a startup. (And we’re grateful to Alloy’s Laura Spiekerman for recently sharing so many relevant go-to-market insights with our founders.) But in the past, those teams would still need a technical co-founder. Now, many of them can get started without one, even if they can’t code at all.

So you’ve built an amazing product — how do you actually get customers to use it and pay for it? That’s what Alloy co-founder Laura Spiekerman joined us to discuss during a recent conversation with founders in Eniac’s portfolio.

We’re proud investors in Alloy, a fintech unicorn. As Laura explained in a previous interview, its product serves as a “command center” for banks and fintech companies looking to centralize customer approval, fraud reduction, and other identity-related tasks.
