BWB were excited to attend and sponsor an award at the 2016 Growth Investor Awards which took place on Thursday 3 November at the Marriott Grosvenor Square.

We sponsored the highly coveted Best Investment Platform award, which was open to any type of investment platform, including angel networks and crowdfunding, with the winner judged on volume of investment, user experience and product innovation.

"The rise of investment platforms is driving innovation in the growth finance industry – this creates some of the most interesting legal and regulatory questions for our firm. BWB and I have been working with investment platforms and growth finance providers for a number of years, supporting them as they have launched, grown and innovated. Now that we have brought together our legal and regulatory expertise, we were particularly proud to sponsor the Best Investment Platform award. This award recognises the most groundbreaking platform models, products and services from across the market. Congratulations to Syndicate Room!”​​
