Note from Sahil

Hi! I'm Sahil. I am the CEO of Gumroad, a company I solo-founded in 2011 and raised $10M+ for, from Kleiner Perkins, Lowercase Capital, First Round Capital, Naval Ravikant, Max Levchin, and others. You can read about that journey here. Today, Gumroad is at $10M ARR, growing 120% year over year, with a team of 10.
Deal flow
This is more important than my thesis. I have access to high-quality companies from around the world, because...
Founders (and investors) know me:
  • I have a fast-growing audience of current and soon-to-be founders who respect me because I candidly share my learnings from starting, growing, and operating a successful business in a burgeoning space (the creator economy).
  • I have a strong network from living in Silicon Valley and tweeting from afar. See LPs below.
Founders want me on their cap table:
Examples of my success getting into deals:
  • Invested in HelloSign as an 18-year old kid with no track record, after attending YC’s Demo Day by cold emailing Paul Graham. (There I sat next to Jack Abraham, who I told should invest in Pinterest; he invested at a $5M valuation.)
  • This timely tweet got 200K impressions, led to 200 emails, and 4 checks wired (plus this fund!): https://twitter.com/shl/status/1267471126571057158
  • Getting into Figma and Lambda School

Note: I invested rarely, doing so only as an early employee (#2) at Pinterest and then after Gumroad became profitable. I was 100% focused on Gumroad from 2012-2016.

Investment Details

Subscription Start Date
April 1, 2024
Minimum Quarterly Subscription
$6,250
Management Fee
Investors pay management fees of 2.5% per year for the first 10 years. Management fees are taken as a percentage of the total committed capital. The total management fee is paid out quarterly over the first four years of the fund's life.
Carry
Twenty percent (20%), with an increase to thirty percent (30%) after the fund realizes a 3.0x return
Admin Fee
0.15% per year over 10 years
Starting Q1 2025, this Rolling Fund will transition onto updated Rolling Fund pricing terms. Under these new pricing terms, each new quarterly fund in the Rolling Fund Program will pay an annualized rate of $2.5k + 0.2% of contributed capital over 10 years.

Fees for each quarterly fund in the Rolling Fund Program will vary based on each quarterly fund’s capital contributions since the fee includes a flat fee component. The last quarterly fund in this Rolling Fund Program closed $749.96k in contributed capital. Learn more about how to estimate your commitment’s fees at our help center.
GP Commitment
Sahil will satisfy their GP commitment in part by waiving 60% of management fees otherwise owed to them by the fund.

The performance of past deals or a lead investors' track record is not a guarantee of future returns. Venture capital fund investments are inherently risky and illiquid. Such investments involve a high degree of risk and are suitable only for sophisticated and accredited investors.

The fund lead and the fund's investment advisor have the right to waive or charge additional carry to certain investors. The fund's legal name may be different from the name used above.
This fund may accept new investors after the fund undergoes a valuation update. Certain potential investors in the fund may then have access to materially different information concerning fund value at the time of their investment.
Current or future portfolio companies in this fund may use AngelList's recruiting platform and may pay an affiliate of the fund's investment adviser for premium recruiting tools and services.
