Expected Deals/Year
Note from Fin Tech by Flight.vc

The Founders have been investing in and working in technology driven financial services companies for over a decade.  

Banks and old school financial services firms are being dis-intermediated by capital marketplaces, new forms of lenders, new forms of investment companies and more.

Anyone considering an investment in one of my syndicates should understand that these investments represent absolute risk, and there is a meaningful risk that they can lose all their money. There is no guarantee of a "soft landing" or acquisition if things do not go as planned. In addition, there is no guarantee that, even in a successful company, there will be opportunity for liquidity for the shares represented and an investor should be prepared to have their capital committed for ten years, or more without liquidity.

When the chips were down I only thought I had two options, close the company or sell it. Gil encouraged me to choose a third option "aim for the moon". We did and the result is a profitable growing company on the way to success
