What are the costs associated with running an SPV on AngelList?

  • For Standard SPVs, AngelList charges a flat setup fee of $8,000 and a state regulatory filing fee of $2,000, with the total fees capped at 10% of the raised amount. Standard SPVs require a minimum raise of $80,000.
  • For Follow-On SPVs, AngelList charges a flat setup fee of $5,000 and a state regulatory filing fee of $2,000, with the total fees capped at 10% of the raised amount. Follow-On SPVs require a minimum raise of $50,000. Follow-On SPVs are SPVs that are run into the same company, via the same syndicate. 

SPV setup fees

  • Fixed cost for a given SPV.
  • Paid to AngelList to cover certain back-office operations for the lifetime of your SPV (as agreed to under your fund administration agreement).

State regulatory fees

  • State and provincial regulatory filings are required by securities regulators in the US and Canada. In the U.S., state regulatory fees are known as blue sky filing costs. States and provinces may increase their regulatory fees year-to-year.  
  • AngelList collects these fees and pays them to the state security regulators to cover the cost of the required notice filings.

To learn more about how state regulatory fees are incurred, read our Help Center article.

To keep costs manageable for SPVs, AngelList caps SPV setup and regulatory fees at 10% of the total SPV size, if it meets the minimum. If the minimum size is met and the SPV setup fees and state regulatory fees are above 10% of the capital raised, AngelList will cover the excess.

How are follow-on SPVs determined?

We consider an SPV a follow-on if your syndicate has previously run an SPV into the same company. 

In follow-on scenarios, setup fees for the SPVs are discounted to $5k.

  • Total Incurred Setup and Regulatory Fees: $10,000
