Invest in Creative: Building an Effective Syndicate
Dive into the exciting world of angel investing and hear about it through the lens of syndication!
Join us at the first in the series of Building an Effective Syndicate workshops, where angels will explore the key aspects of investing in a group, advantages and benefits of co-investment for reducing risk, how to attract the best deal flow, and maximising opportunity for returns. This first instalment in the series will look at the nuts and bolts of what a syndicate is, the importance of pooling capital, what steps to take to join a syndicate, and what to consider when building your own.
Part of the Invest in Creative toolkit, this virtual event will also spotlight why sector focused syndicates can be important and how working and investing alongside industry experts can increase the potential for successful outcomes.
