FundersClub, the first online venture capital firm recognized by the SEC, announced in an email today that it will now take the industry standard 20% carried interest on future funds formed to invest in startups on its platform for accredited investors. The announcement comes just over a month after the Securities and Exchange Commission issued Funders Club a no action letter, allowing them to operate as the first online venture capital firm in history.
FundersClub only receives carry, which is a % of proceeds following some liquidity event, after 100% of the originally invested funds are returned to investors, less a 10% administrative fee on invested funds to cover 3rd party expenses such as legal, banking and accounting. Unused admin fees are also returned to investors.
