Invest in Creative: Building a Syndicate
Investing in a syndicate is important for a variety of reasons, including pooling capital, access to deal flow, high level of expertise and notably, reducing risk. On 6th October, we presented the second in the series of Invest in Creative: Building a Syndicate workshops, where we explored what it takes to build a successful sector-focused syndicate and unpicked some of the key considerations angels should take. Sitting down with the founder and managing director of South East Angels, Kristina Pereckaite, we looked at the journey of forming an angel group, the benefits of pooling capital, the incredible benefits of building an ethos-aligned investment group and more.
This event was part of the new Invest in Creative toolkit, which has been developed by investors, for investors. The toolkit offers investors a journey through investing in the creative industries by spotlighting where other investing are backing innovators, educational resources, examples of success stories and a host of informative events.
