What is a syndicate?

A syndicate is  a group of people who band together to invest a total amount in a start up. This makes it more attractive for Founders when accepting angel investment because they only have the syndicate Leader to work with, and one name to add to their cap table rather than various individuals. The individuals investing in a syndicate are called Limited Partners (LPs) and the method used for each investment the Syndicate makes is called a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV). This gives the LPs more control over where they invest their money compared to a Fund which asks for investment upfront and then uses a Fund Manager to make all investments thereafter.
