Gust and SyndicateRoom collaborate for UK-based angel investment opportunities

February 2016

Great news from one of our partners, Syndicate Room as they launch a partnership with Gust, the worlds largest global network of early-stage investors and founders! 

Fundsurfer began working with SR last year and while we have over 100+ funding partners we thought they stood out with an innovative investor led platform and model, opening up access to new and exciting sources of funding for our clients. This partnership is further evidence that the UK fintech sector is booming and we look forward to working together. For more information on funding options contact our team

 

“The United Kingdom is a hotbed of early-stage investment opportunities. As with other global innovation centers in the world, it is our goal to get innovative companies funded,” said David S. Rose, CEO of Gust. Talking to Cambridge Network  “Through our collaboration, investors on SyndicateRoom and Gust now have access to highly vetted angel deals, and Gust and SyndicateRoom founders can close deals faster by syndicating across both platforms. By closing more quickly, angel groups can source better deals and founders of early-stage companies can spend less time on fundraising and more time on growing their business.” 

“Our partnership with Gust is based around a shared mission, which is to unite investors with entrepreneurs, to close an ever-growing number of investment rounds and to democratise access to investment in exciting growth businesses,” said Gonçalo de Vasconcelos, CEO and Co-founder of SyndicateRoom. “Our unique investor-led model is given a boost with access to new opportunities from the world’s leading angel groups, while our investors will be excited by this unprecedented deal flow.”

The collaboration builds on Gust’s unparalleled reach into the global angel investment community and SyndicateRoom’s investor-led equity crowdfunding platform.
