Equity crowdfunding platform SyndicateRoom has teamed up with law firm Taylor Wessing to launch an education initiative for those looking to invest in equity crowdfunding projects.

The Investor Academy offers free online resources created by investment experts and existing angels to help would-be investors navigate the process, from understanding the legalities of equity crowdfunding to securing an exit.

Goncalo de Vasconcelos, founder and CEO of SyndicateRoom, said: “From the beginning, we have been trying hard to raise standards in the equity crowdfunding arena, focusing particularly on ensuring that investors’ interests are properly protected and balanced equitably with those of the businesses seeking funding. Whether or not people invest through SyndicateRoom, they can benefit – free of charge – from this invaluable material that is sadly not readily available elsewhere in digestible form.”

Adrian Rainey, corporate technology partner at Taylor Wessing, added: “Equity crowdfunding is gaining huge traction amongst investors and entrepreneurs, and its continued success is being supported by an increasingly sophisticated user base demanding not only quality deal flow but also robust legal process and a balanced deal between investors and entrepreneurs.”
