THE CRYPTOCURRENCY MARKET IS GROWING EXPONENTIALLY
The ICO market has surpassed $5.8 Billion in Q1 2018
With an average growth rate of over 344% per quarter
A FRAGMENTED ECOSYSTEM
ACCORDING TO FORTUNE, 46% OF 2017 ICOS HAVE ALREADY FAILED.
Many execution risks exist for startups during and after token sale- as a result, 46% of blockchain inspired technology projects from 2017 have failed already.*
Existing VC funds, syndicates, and angel investors typically provide limited support beyond capital, often competing against each other in closed siloes, which restricts the movement of critical information. Investing without support and due diligence increases the risk of losing capital.
CoSyndicate incentivises cooperation between investors, projects, and industry vendors to reduce execution risks associated with the execution of the business and increases the likelihood of success.
AND THERE ARE RISKS:
RISKS FOR INVESTORS
There are too many projects to evaluate
Evaluation requires deep knowledge of the technology, often with incomplete information
Most investors are excluded from the earliest funding rounds, and presale discounts
RISKS FOR ENTREPRENEURS
Organising public funding takes time and effort
Uneducated or inexperienced investors are high-maintenance
Projects require effective technical and legal support, which is difficult to source
THIS IS NOT A NEW PROBLEM
It has existed in the traditional venture capital world for a long time.
AngelList solved this problem for traditional investors, but there is no solution yet for the blockchain industry.
HIGH QUALITY PROJECTS REQUIRE MORE THAN CAPITAL
CoSyndicate enables this by incentivising collaboration between syndicates and industry experts across the value chain.
