We’re delighted to welcome Francesca O’Brien, Head of Private Markets from SyndicateRoom to our Equity Options - Finding the Right Investors for your Business seminar. Fran's responsible for managing the private deals on the Equity platform.
Fran previously worked with the legal team responsible for preparing victim and witness statements for the Leveson Inquiry, and within the schools and education department of the London Borough of Ealing Council. She joined SyndicateRoom to immerse herself in the unique challenge that comes from working at an ambitious, rapidly growing company, within an exciting and disruptive industry.
Fran will join the Informed Funding team as we run our proven fast moving mix of interview sessions with entrepreneurs and quizzing of funders (Crowd Equity, VC and Angel Networks in this instance).
Our event will also feature Rod Brown, CEO and Co-Founder of “proptech” Opun, and Richard Heyns, Founder and CEO of brytlyt.
"Opun, through MCADO, quickly raised its funding target of £750,000 from an angel syndicate of industry heavyweights, including investment veteran Will Chawner. Opun’s Lift Round through SyndicateRoom raised this number to £983,000, funds which will enable them to service their rapidly growing customer demand and to prepare for a favourable Series A valuation"
