DEAL SHARING & SYNDICATION

Often startups require more funding than any one group can provide so deals are usually shared and/or syndicated. We are a founding member of the InSync Angel Network whose mission is to:
  • Make funding faster and more efficient for entrepreneurs
  • Provide better deal flow to Network members
To get visibility on the Network you need to be referred by a member—but only with your permission. We refer companies that are compelling, even if they are not in an area that is interesting to our members.

With the new multi-class LLC, the angels who choose to invest go in as a limited liability operating group. That means investors can invest less in any given company, and therefore invest in more companies, diversifying their risk, said John Peters, chairman of the Sacramento Angels.
