Angel syndicates: An emerging alternative for early-stage funding

WHAT IS AN ANGEL SYNDICATE?

THE BENEFITS OF RAISING CAPITAL FROM ANGEL SYNDICATES

1. One large cheque

2. Clean ‘cap table’

3. Investors that add value beyond capital

4. No risk of Angel Tax

5. Quicker decisions

6. No signaling risks

7. No placement fees or associated costs

What are the drawbacks?

  1. Unlike funds who can put a firm investment amount on the Term Sheet, Angel Syndicates will typically give a range, based on the estimate of the Lead Investor and the final investment amount will be known to the founders only after the investment opportunity is formally offered to all the investors in the Syndicate.
