Venture capital has long been dominated by idiosyncratic decision making, so SyndicateRoom's systematic data-driven approach is genuinely unique.

This hasn't developed overnight, and we discuss SyndicateRoom's progression from a platform offering individual investments to the radical diversification approach that they use now. This is built on studying the whole of the UK market, which gives insights that will be useful to almost any investor.

We discuss how many investments the data suggest, how SyndicateRoom selects angels to invest alongside, the challenges of following on and what they can't take account of.
