Our Founder Story

I started Angel investing 5 years ago. I got my first exit in year 2, and my first unicorn 2 years after that.

I saw syndicates as a way to scale capital, diversify risk, and earn more upside through carried interest. Here’s what I learnt.

It’s really HARD to build a syndicate from 0:

01

No best practices: Building syndicates isn’t a structured discipline today. Google “how to start an angel syndicate” and you’ll get piecemeal answers about creating a syndicate on AngelList or how syndicates work. There’s simply no single end-to-end view of the process.

02

Broad skillsets required: Building a successful syndicate is like running startup. You’ll be convincing LPs to look at your dealflow (BizDev), performing due diligence (Being a VC), sharing deals with your LPs (marketing) and closing capital (Sales). It takes all these skillsets at the right amounts at the right time.

03

The chicken-and-egg problem: Functioning syndicates require both LPs and dealflow at the same time. There’s a ‘cold start’ problem in having to solve both sides of the equation at once.

Jed Ng, Angel School founder
Today, I’m backed by a network of investors that’s grown from 0 to 700+ in 18 months. That network grows entirely on its own. As it scales, so does my ability to invest. Now, I deploy $4MN / year and expect that to double in the next year. I earn 20% carry on every syndicate- no exceptions.
I’ve never worked in PE or IB. I’ve never been a finance professional. I’ve never worked in a VC fund. If I can do it, so can any Angel with the right passion and drive.
There has never been more capital available for startups than today. What the market needs are ‘market makers’. I started Angel School because I believe Angel investors and Syndicates serve that critical function. I want to empower the next generation of Angels to deploy more capital into their own ecosystems through their own syndicates.
Join our next cohort and I’ll arm you with a syndicate blueprint within 8 weeks. We’ll continually invest in your development. You’ll work alongside other Angel School alumni gaining real investing experience, building your track record and even earn carry in the process.
