Just on Tuesday, YouTube star Logan Paul participated in a deal with the Chernin Group to raise $40 million for Goldin Auctions, a place for auctioning collectibles. In December, Charli D’Amelio participated in a round that raised $50 million for banking startup u003ca href="https://techcrunch.com/2020/12/02/teen-banking-service-step-raises-50m-adds-tiktok-star-charli-damelio-to-investor-list/">Stepu003c/a>. And late last year, the TikTok stars known as the “Sway House Boys” invested in fintech u003ca href="https://www.businessinsider.com/why-founders-sign-venture-deals-with-tiktok-stars-sway-boys-2020-11">Lendtableu003c/a>. u003c/p> u003cp>Now a newly launched seed fund is hoping to bring even more creators into the venture capital space. u003c/p> u003cp>On Monday, Atelier Ventures, a seed fund helmed by former Andreessen Horowitz Partner Li Jin, launched its $13 million debut fund. Having u003ca href="https://li.substack.com/">written extensivelyu003c/a> about this rising class effectively launching small businesses off of their own brands, Jin plans to be what she calls “the connective tissue” between creators and the broader venture industry.u003c/p> u003cp>“It used to be the case that creators were social capital rich but money poor—but they are now creating more capital to deploy. They are cognisant of the need to diversify their own financial lives because the algorithm could change at any moment,” she told Term Sheet over the phone Tuesday.u003c/p> u003cp>The story of Lendtable is a prime example of why startups may want influencers as investors: According to u003ca href="https://www.businessinsider.com/why-founders-sign-venture-deals-with-tiktok-stars-sway-boys-2020-11">Business Insideru003c/a>, the Sway Boys invested just $7,500 in Lendtable—a small amount. But the social media stars’ promotion of the product on their accounts led to a notable spike in signups for the fintech.u003c/p> u003cp>As Jin puts it: “The startups that have recently pitched me, anecdotally, would rather have folks that are digitally native and have built their following on social media versus a traditional celebrity because TikTok is a huge goldmine for consumer companies.”u003c/p> u003cp>But bringing in more creators as investors is just a part of Atelier’s broader thesis. The newfangled fund plans to invest in areas that Jin dubs the “passion economy.” While that does encompass companies that help influencers make a living off their online fame (Atelier-backed Streamloots, for instance, allows viewers to buy interactions—such as playing a GIF on screen—from their favorite streamers), Atelier will seek to also invest in businesses that help artists, newsletter writers, and musicians looking to reach their audiences directly rather than through large publications or record labels. The “passion economy,” u003ca href="https://a16z.com/2019/10/08/passion-economy/">in contrast to the gig economyu003c/a>, allows creators to be their own boss and form a direct relationship with the customer.u003c/p> u003cp>In a very on-brand move, Jin made the announcement through a newsletter hosted on Substack, one of Atelier's investments. Lenny’s Newsletter, u003ca href="https://www.lennysnewsletter.com/p/li-jin-launches-atelier-ventures">written by Lenny Rachitskyu003c/a>, defines the passion economy as “an entirely new economic movement that empowers individuals over institutions.”u003c/p> u003cp>Take Atelier’s investment in Dumpling, a startup that is billed as a hopeful rival to Instacart. While consumers who use Instacart to deliver their groceries may have little connection to the gig worker who dropped off their goods, Dumpling seeks to make that worker the owner of their own grocery delivery service. And other venture capital investors have added millions of dollars to creator startups such as Patreon and Cameo.u003c/p> u003cp>Still, the question remains for consumer-focused startups as they bring in such creators as smaller investors: Fame comes and goes. What is the long-term value in having influencers as investors?u003c/p> u003cp>“If their relevance fades, then the question is what can they offer to startups if they are no longer famous? That is going to separate the best creator investors from the not-great investors,” says Jin.u003c/p> u003cp>So for now, you can dismiss the TikTokers and influencers all you want, but they are still coming to roost.u003c/p> u003cp>u003cstrong>Lucinda Shenu003c/strong>u003cbr>u003cstrong>Twitter: u003c/strong>u003ca href="https://twitter.com/ShenLucinda">@shenlucindau003c/a>u003cbr>u003cstrong>Email: u003c/strong>lucinda.shen@fortune.comu003c/p> u003cp>u003cem>u003cstrong>Correctionu003c/strong>: A previous version of this story incorrectly identified a company as Lootstream.
