Syndicate Room works with existing angel investors who have much more available cash than most of us. The idea is that an experienced angel investor will thoroughly check out a business, and then invest a substantial sum as well as providing advice and guidance to the entrepreneurs.
Then further investors will join in via Syndicate Room so that the business can raise all the cash it needs.
The attraction of this model is that you may take comfort from the fact that an experienced angel investor thinks a business has potential. On the other hand, it’s harder to spread around your cash across a range of businesses if you have to invest at least £500 in each company.
