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.
