SyndicateRoom takes its place in the Killer50

SyndicateRoom, based at ideaSpace, has helped a range of businesses raise cash to commercialise their projects through its unique model. It only lists companies already backed by professional business angels, who are investing their own money, and offers its members the same terms if they decide to invest alongside these professionals.

The company says it has democratised investment in young, fast-growing companies, helping companies to overcome the shortfall in capital usually associated with strong growth by allowing individuals to invest and become real-life ‘Dragons’.

And by subscribing members to the same share class and same rights as a business angel, SyndicateRoom ensures they are signing up to nothing less than the same deal as a professional investor.

Gonçalo de Vasconcelos, CEO of SyndicateRoom, said: “We are very pleased and honoured to have joined the Killer50 and be listed next to other amazing companies that inspire us to do better and think bigger every day. Joining such a list is great, but to make it to the list in one of the most entrepreneurial and successful areas of the world makes it feel extra special. We are absolutely thrilled!”

Also on the Killer50 list is Cambridge Intelligence, the firm responsible for the KeyLines data visualisation toolkit. It is one of a growing number of ideaSpace alumni and it moved into its own offices on Cambridge’s Regent Street earlier this year.
