Syndicate Investors have had the opportunity to invest in companies that have raised money from Andreessen, Greylock, Founders Fund, First Round, Google Ventures, IDG, Matrix, Bessemer and others... and you get to invest at essentially half the price they charge their investors.
I specialize in consumer, marketplaces, SAAS and other products that can be sold without expensive sales people and that can penetrate the enterprise more like a virus.
My investment successes include:
- Linkedin - IPO
- Paypal - IPO
- Cruise Automotive (Exit to GM in 2016)
- Dollar Shave Club (Exit to Uniliver in 2016)
- Fastly, Indiegogo, Beepi, Wealthfront received late stage rounds
Acquired: Plusmo, Flowdock, Qype, Military, Evite, UltraRPM, Vatera, Voicestar, Vamoose, and many 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.
I'm syndicating all deals - with the caveat that the company ultimately can prevent me from allowing the syndicate in if they really want to.
