Syndicates and Syndication

June 17, 2020 by investor

Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso — your daily shot of startup funding and investing.

Both angels and venture capitalists often invest in syndicates.  

In a syndicate, one of the investors leads the round and the other investors follow. 

Sometimes the syndicate is a formal group in which the lead investor receives compensation from other investors who join the round.  

Angel investors often join syndicates in which they pay a portion of their carry to the lead investor for organizing the deal. 

Other times, the syndicate is informal with investors sharing deals with each other for no compensation.

VCs also syndicate deals with each other to help fill out the round as a way of attracting the better deals. They bring not only their own funding but can also attract additional capital.

Thank you for joining us for the Startup Funding Espresso where we help startups and investors connect for funding.

Let’s go startup something today.
