Raising can be complex, time consuming and expensive

Companies tell us they want investors who understand the potential of their business and trust them to run it. They value the combined experience of their investors but don’t have the time to manage a large number of small shareholders.

They want to give investors fair rights, as long as they can avoid onerous terms, endless legal negotiations and difficulties when it’s time to exit the business. And, of course, for fees to be transparent and reasonable.

Having already worked hard with a group of angel investors to secure over half of our raise, joining Syndicate Room was a welcome relief from the exhausting pitching process and the nominee structure makes the paperwork of taking on multiple investors far simpler and easier.
