No such thing as an "essential carb."

Does anyone have first or even second-hand experience with online venture capital (VC) firms?

Certain key restrictions were lifted several years ago, softening the requirements for more people to become angel investors with VC firms - enabling them to invest in syndicates (essentially, a VC fund) under a lead investor. 

The lead does deals on the platform using the syndicate’s (and often their own) money. If/when there is a return, the lead takes a “carry” (commission) on the returns of each investor in their syndicate.   

It sounds appealing if maybe you’ve got a couple of grand to “play with.” I simply have never spoken with anyone who’s personally done or knows someone who’s done it.

Are you talking about First Trust Deeds or crowdfunding?

Ah... now I know what you're talking about.

My original post relates more to the crowd funding type, although I was more interested in a somewhat newer form of angel investing platforms lead by syndicates.
I really lost interest, though, after listening to a podcast with Chris Sacca.
