Goldenset Collective, a New York-based provider of a platform making equity investments in digital creator businesses, raised $10M+ in Seed funding.
The round was led by A.Capital and Lerer Hippeau, with participation from Thirty Five Ventures.
The company intends to use the funds to make between 10 and 20 initial investments while building out their internal team and creator support infrastructure.
Co-founded by Darren Lachtman and Nick Millman, Goldenset is a platform to invest in and support the next generation of digital creators. The company supports creators by becoming equity partners in their growing and evolving businesses, with the collective goal of creating long-term enterprise value owned by the creator. In exchange for stakes in talent-led businesses, Goldenset is investing both cash and services to help scale these nascent companies.
Goldenset has already deployed $1 million to support seven different creators. With these deals and future financings, the company offers talent favorable terms, enabling them to jumpstart their social media channels, while maintaining personal financial stability.
