SyndicateRoom引入“搭配融资”机制

如果某个众筹平台刚刚完成了一轮电梯轮"搭配融资",就意味着某个项目在进行线上众筹之前就已完成最低筹资目标。也就是说,天使投资人或其他专业投资者的需求量大,足以完成其投资目标,不再需要向散户融资。但是鉴于SyndicateRoom的"天使投资引导"模式,上述类型的融资项目仍会在平台上出现,给散户投资者投资的机会,这一模式得到了很多专业投资者的支持。SyndicateRoom平台的散户投资者和天使投资者们可共同投资某个项目。

因颠覆性家居装饰品牌"Opun"被人们熟知的MCADO是第一个实行"搭配融资"的企业。该公司最近在SyndicateRoom平台上筹到了一笔巨款,数额高达982,997英镑。MCADO的原始目标是749,992英镑,多出来的钱来自散户投资者。天使投资者Will Chawner和David Turnbull也都参与了这项融资。

随着融资的增多,用于众筹的MCADO的股权数量也有所上升。本轮融资的可用股本的最大值120万英镑,这与原本的MCADO本来的总股本价值相当。由于MCADO的可支配资金不断增加,天使投资者们也在考虑降低对MCADO的风险考量。

SyndicateRoom并不是首次实行电梯轮"搭配融资"。它们在11月份帮助Bactest筹集到了301,760英镑,后来被叫做"过剩投资"。但是实际上,Bactest模仿的是MCADO的电梯轮"搭配融资"模式。

SyndicateRoom的CEO Gon?alo de Vasconcelos表示:"由于股权众筹的兴起,搭配融资已经成为了2015年的新趋势。 SyndicateRoom对未来有着清晰的规划:我们要为发展中的公司提供民主化融资,并给投资者更好的投资机会,确保他们和天使们共同投资。SyndicateRoom会让早期投资者们和大众共同投资,并且会推出更多的搭配融资模式。"

The platform has just closed a "Lift Round" - which essentially means a fundraising campaign that has already reached its minimum target prior to having been listed on the site. More specifically, a Lift Round involves a fundraise that has hit its funding target thanks to significant demand from an angel syndicate, or from other professional investors. Given SyndicateRoom's "Angel-led" investment model, such campaigns may still be listed on the platform - giving retail investors the chance to pile in on a round that is guaranteed to close, and that has the backing of a number of professional investors. Those retail investors that do choose to participate in Lift Rounds on the SyndicateRoomplatform will invest on the same terms as all existing Angel investors.

MCADO, better known as the disruptive home improvement brand "Opun", was one of the first company's to launch a Lift Round. The campaign recently raised a sizeable £982,997 through the SyndicateRoom platform, in exchange for 8.53% of the company. MCADO's original target raise was £749,992, with the remaining money coming from retail investors. Angel investors Will Chawner and David Turnbull participated in the round.

The equity offered up by MCADO climbed in keeping with the amount of money raised by the company. The round carried a ceiling of £1.2m, which would have been equivalent to the value of the maximum amount of available equity. For MCADO, the extra funding opens the door to more rapid growth. And the company's Angel investors will likely consider their investments marginally de-risked, given the added capital at MCADO's disposal.

This is not the first time that SyndicateRoom has hosted a Lift Round. The platform helped Bactest to raise £301,760 in November, in what was then referred to as an "overfunded" raise. But in reality, the Bactest round was a carbon copy of the recent MCADO Lift Round.

Gon?alo de Vasconcelos, CEO of SyndicateRoom, explained:

"Lift Rounds have been an emerging trend during 2015, as equity crowdfunding comes of age. We at SyndicateRoom have always had a distinct vision: We're democratising investment in growth businesses and crucially we're giving our members access to a more sophisticated set of investment opportunities, enabling them to invest with the angels. We look forward to many more Lift Rounds, as SyndicateRoom enables the early-stage investment community to work in ever-closer partnership with the crowd".
