START INVESTING

Investing into a startup is a high risk decision with potentially high return. Venture capital funds provide high returns (20% p.a. and higher on average) but do so by investing into large number of startups. Most of their investment portfolio fails, however some of startups in their portfolio provide 10x or even 100+ returns. If you invest into 1, 2, or even 5 startups personally as an angel investor, chances are high that your portfolio will fail completely and you will loose most of your money. You need to get shares in 10+ startups to expect decent return with lower risk, however it's quite expensive if you do it on your own.

This is where syndicated investment makes a lot of sense. If you invest together with, say, 20 investors then you need 20 times less money to get the same number of startups into your portfolio. ChangerBAN does exactly that: this is a syndicate of investors run by professional fund manager.

By investing with syndicate, you also save time and money on legal procedures. Investing into startups is often a tough challenge, you need to negotiate your deal with founders, do due diligence of the company and paperwork, keep in touch with the team later on. This is where syndicate is more effective than a single investor. Due diligence is done by professional fund manager, he is taking a board seats to supervise portfolio companies after investment is made and to help them grow, raise next rounds or make an exit.
  
Syndicate is also a good partner for startups. Having 20 angel investors on board with expertise in different areas and diverse contact networks is much more useful than raising money from a single investor. Syndicated investment into seed stage company is smart money that help startups to grow.

ChangerBAN is looking for early stage startups with a high growth potential from Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Belarus. Typical investment is 100-200KEUR.
