LONDON, January 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Online investment platform, SyndicateRoom, which pioneered the investor-led model, is the latest company to partner with the UK's largest event for private investors. This year's Master Investor Show takes place at the Business Design Centre on Saturday 25th March. The CEOs and founders of 100 exhibiting companies will connect with an anticipated audience of 5,000 private investors. As well as exhibiting at the show, SyndicateRoom's Gonçalo de Vasconcelos will deliver a keynote speech on the main-stage.
SyndicateRoom is renowned in financial services as a quality leader in equity investment. Of the funding proposals published on its website, 73% have been fully funded, compared to the 42% industry average - testament to SyndicateRoom's network of high calibre business angels and investors, which lead each of the funding rounds. Since its inception in 2013, the company has raised £64.8m from 86 companies.
SyndicateRoom will use the event sponsorship to reach an active delegate audience of private investors - many of whom are looking to expand their non-traditional investment portfolios. Swen Lorenz, CEO of Master Investor:
"Online investment has become popular, but successful investing is all about investing into quality companies. With its unique approach to only featuring fundraising pitches that already have the backing of a successful lead investor, SyndicateRoom has created the model that we are happy to put in front of our delegates."
SyndicateRoom will deliver two presentations, including a 30-minute keynote speech on the main-stage by founder and innovator, Gonçalo de Vasconcelos. Jim Mellon, the self-made celebrity investor (net worth GBP 850m), who has already backed a company that raised funds through SyndicateRoom, will join Gonçalo during the talk.
"The Master Investor Show is one of the most important events in any serious investor's calendar, particularly for those hunting for growth in today's low-yield economic environment," said Gonçalo de Vasconcelos, CEO and co-founder, SyndicateRoom. "SyndicateRoom provides its members with exclusive access to high-growth equity investment opportunities, which attendees will be looking for. We're looking forward to being a part of this prestigious event."
This year's Master Investor Show is the 15th anniversary of the UK's largest investment event. SyndicateRoom is the sixth sponsor confirmed. Fidelity International, Selftrade, Seven Investment Management, Northland Capital Partners Limited and London South East are also sponsoring the event.
