We aim to hold five member events per calendar year where five companies present their case to raise early-stage capital to develop their businesses. In addition we may invite existing investee companies of the syndicate to give members an update on their progress or to present for a new round of investment.


We host a relaxed networking drinks party afterwards where syndicate members have the opportunity to meet the presenting companies.
