EstBAN Syndicates


EstBAN Syndicates are a micro-fund type of co-investment syndicates where angel investors will participate with individual tickets and invest into 1-2 startups chosen by themselves. Often the syndication program is combined with business angel trainings led by experienced startup investors. The syndicates always link with the leading startup events in the New Nordics like Latitude59 or sTARTUp Day, culminating in an investment selected by the group. 

Previous EstBAN syndicates:
