A serial entrepreneur himself, Gonçalo understands what it takes to build a good business plan and what investors are looking for from a business. It is from his experiences as an entrepreneur, and the experience of helping businesses raise finance through SyndicateRoom, that Gonçalo writes.

Gonçalo is also a contributor for Forbes, writing regularly about equity crowdfunding, business angel investment and venture capital investment and speaks regularly at public events about the same themes.

In his spare time Gonçalo cycles long distances to raise money for charities (his last ride was from Cambridge to Paris), plays tennis and, when in warmer climates, sails with his wife whenever there is half a chance.
