June 30th, 2021

Today, we are proud to announce that Syndicate has raised $800K from 100 early users, partners, and friends in its community (full list below). Syndicate’s community raise is an important first step in democratizing our own platform and making Syndicate community-owned.

Our community raise was completed in less than a week via Syndicate itself: 100 early community members invested in Syndicate via an SPV-like Syndicate DAO launched on our platform and protocol.

DAO-powered Special Purpose Vehicles (SPVs) are just one of many applications (Community DAOs, Ecosystem Funds, NFT Funds, Economic Empowerment DAOs) for Syndicate that are rolling out now and in the weeks ahead.

Progressively Decentralizing to Our Community

If Syndicate’s aim is to democratize investing, it’s important that we live by our values and—as best we can—take the steps needed to democratize and decentralize Syndicate itself. The Community Raise is just the first step of many we will be taking to both grow and democratize the platform over time.

The 100 community members who are now early investors in Syndicate include:

  • Early contributors
  • Early users
  • Current and future partners
  • Current and future collaborators
  • Syndicate NFT owners

We’re excited to continue growing our community in the months and years ahead.

Join the Revolution

We are starting a movement to change investing for the better, for everyone. We’ve launched the IDEO Founder Collective, Terra Ecosystem Incubator, Delphi INFINFT, Komorebi Collective, Fiat Lux DAO, and Audacity—and we’re getting ready to roll out our private beta in stages soon.
