Syndicates Masterclass: Launching Your Own Syndicate

The Syndicate Value Prop, Your Brand, and Where do you Fit

As VC funds get bigger and bigger, and write more and checks, it becomes increasingly competitive to get into great deals. What makes your check valuable to these startups, in addition to the capital you provide? Figuring this out, whether it’s your expertise, your network, or the active superstar LPs you have, will be critical in getting allocation into great deals. As a smaller check, you can develop relationships with these VC firms, and instead of competing, establish co-investing partnerships that are win-win for both sides. These factors will make it easier for you to bring in quality LPs, raise more money, and the virtuous cycle continues.
