Note from FinTech

FinTech Angels is a domain-specific syndicate created to invest in FinTech. While we believe that there are significant opportunities to improve back and middle office operations of financial institutions, what really gets us excited is the opportunity to reduce the friction between the owners of capital and the consumers of capital. FinTech is no longer about twenty five investment banks and a hundred commercial banks. We're talking about hundreds of sovereign wealth funds, thousands of pension funds, tens of thousands of asset managers, financial advisors and brokers, hundreds of thousands of corporations and SMEs and millions of consumers. We're talking about the democratization of capital on a massive scale.

Dealflow

ALL ITB Venture Capital seed and series A deals where we receive an allocation of $100,000 or more will be syndicated pending approval of the company's founders.

It is our intention to bring forward 20 - 30 truly exceptional FinTech companies over the next 3 - 5 years for syndication. Ideally, backers should size their investments accordingly, to create a portfolio and to leave capacity for follow on investments.

Backers may opt out of any deal. However, if you agree to fund a company and back out after the close you will not be invited to invest in any subsequent deals.

Finally, be comfortable with risk that you are embracing when you invest in our syndicated deals and only invest what you can afford to lose.
